Impatiens Plantings

hutch added on June 17, 2011 | Answered

Just purchased Impatiens plants. Being "late" in the season to start, the plants are single stems with no fullness. If I pinch the plants back, can I thereby force them to become fuller instead of single stems?

Yes, this works well. Just nip (aka pinch) the very top end of the stem and this will kill the terminal bud and force the secondary buds to grow as branches.
