Impatiens Plants


Anonymous added on June 28, 2011 | Answered

I have impatiens planted just inches apart and were full of blooms when I planted them in May, somewhere around Mother's Day. They were planted in good topsoil in complete shade, but get a little bit of morning sun. I have been watering them regularly at least every other day unless it rains. They are not spreading and don't have very many blooms on them. My daughter has hers planted in the shade, purchased them at the same place, get watered every day and hers are full of blooms and are spreading together. What is my problem?
