My grandmother had flowers that she called "touch me nots". They had seed pods that exploded when you touched them. They had beautiful blooms and they constantly reseeded. Where can I find seeds and what is the real name?

The plant you're looking for is Impatiens balsamina, or perennial Impatiens. 'Touch-Me-Not' is one common name, Lady's Slipper is another. You can purchase seed through Cyberseed, PO Box 171102, San Antonio, TX 78217-1102.
