My New Guinea Impatiens
hanging basket has suddenly stopped blooming.
I water it every day. It
gets some sun but more
shade and has always done
beautifully. What could
be wrong?

Sounds like it's getting the right shade/sun exposure and if it's putting out new growth, it's healthy so I'm not sure what's delaying the bloom. Too much fertilizer can result in lots of vegetative growth but sometimes at the expense of flowers so if you are regularly fertilizing your plant, try holding off on feeding for a month or so. Hope your plant starts blooming again soon!
