The Q&A Archives: Non Flowering New Guinea Impatiens

Question: Every year I choose beautiful impatiens plants to buy that are full of flowers. Within a few weeksof planting them in pots the plants stops blossoming and for the rest of the summer they will only have one or two blossoms on at a time. I fertilize the plants with Miracle Grow Every couple of weeks but it doesn't help. Help please.

Answer: How disappointing for you! New Guinea Impatiens need somewhat more light than bedding impatiens so I wonder if your plants should be moved to a partially sunny location? Try giving the plants direct morning sunshine and see if that doesn't improve their performance. I bet it will!
