I just love these flowers. I live in a granny flat and have a lovely window in my kitchen where I have set a shelf for my flower pots. I have no proper garden as such and enjoy potting around with different flowers. I first had my impatiens in pots outside but, unfortunately, it is not a very shady area so took a stem out and put into water in my kichen and it seems to be doing quite well, but the second one I put into a pot inside seems to be stagnated. The ones I have still outside are dying. Can I cut branches off and pot them for inside the flat in different size pots? I notice the one in the kitchen seems to have a white covering over the soil. What do I need to do?
