Anyone growing Impatiens from seed

14 years ago


I have been growing impatiens from seed for quite a few years now. I buy the bulk 250 seed package from Stokes.

They say the germination rate is 85% and that has held true other years but this year I think close to every seed germinated.

I transplanted them yesterday in the greenhouse and I ended up with 239 plants. I know 3 or 4 got broken off in the house and another 3 or 4 when I was transplanting so I am very pleased and just had to tell someone.

My friends are going to be happy to get my extras because this is far too many for me.

Does anyone else grow Impatiens from seed? How have yours done?
