About the only requirement impatiens have is moist soil, so if you let the soil dry out between waterings, that may be part of the problem. Try pinching off the wilted leaves and keep your impatiens well-watered (sometimes once a day if the weather's hot). Once they're growing well again, feed every 2-3 weeks with a half-strength liquid fertilizer.
