Why won't my annuals flower? - Knowledgebase Question

I started impatiens, nasturnums and four o'clocks from seed back in April. All have grown well and have been transplanted to pots outside. However, none of them are flowering. What can I do to get them to blossum?

Plant maturity has a lot to do with ability to flower, but the weather plays an important part, too. As long as your plants are putting out healthy new growth, they will eventually reach the point in their lifecycle where they begin to flower. Make sure your nasturtiums and four o'clocks are getting lots of sunshine and your impatiens are in the shade. I'm sure they'll bloom for you soon. Enjoy!
