Double Impatiens

Zone Vancouver Island USDA Zone 8(b) | Glenn added on June 26, 2017 | Answered

Rockapulco - Coral Reef. I have these in rich soil in a hanging basket that gets good indirect light but with only a bit of direct sun. Plants look healthy with lots of new buds but when they open, the flowers fall off within a day. The flowers that fall off look fresh and are definitely not dried out and are replaced with more new buds. Help and suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

It is difficult to provide much help without knowing what type of flower that you are growing in your hanging basket.

Check for pests or disease. Make sure the soil is well draining. Most containers need daily watering and even twice a day when temperatures are above 85 degrees F.
