Impatiens


Dorethea added on January 9, 2013 | Answered

My impatiens suddenly wither within 3 days. I think something is eating them, but I have not actually had a chance to scratch around and see. If snails as I suspect, what can I do about it? Or if it's something else, is there a general way that would help?

Thanks,

Dorethea

Impatiens walleriana are being plagued by a 'new' disease called "impatiens downy mildew". The following article should be helpful: http://www.mnn.com/your-home/organic-farming-gardening/stories/impatiens-disease-becomes-hot-topic
This article is a pdf from an industry giant in the horticultural industry:

Reputable growers should be suggesting that consumers substitute begonias, New Guinea Impatiens or petunias for impatiens walleriana.
