I have some impatiens in a pot on my porch. The plant is nice and healthy looking, but it has very few blooms. What can I do to get more blooms?

If the container of impatiens is getting no sun at all, it might be that a lack of light is causing the end of the flowering - although impatiens do well in shade, they do require some sun in order to bloom well - two hours a day is enough, even if it's only the dappled sun through tree leaves.

Hope this helps!
