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.

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!
