Suffolk Herbs Tubs and Baskets Impatiens Carnival Mix 20 Seeds

£2.00

Impatiens - Carnival Mix

This variety stands out as a strong Impatiens, with exceptional bloom sizes on compact foliage that remains dark green throughout the season. Their metallic colours provide a unique twist to the standard Impatiens. This is ideal as a bedding plant, in containers and hanging baskets, and it is heat and sun resistant. It grows to a height and spread of 15cm.

It needs light, uniform soil temperature and moisture to germinate successfully. Sow from late winter to mid spring at 21-24C on the surface of a good seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Ensure the soil is damp but not wet, and seal inside a polythene bag until after germination, usually 14-21 days. Do not exclude light. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out, after all risk of frost, 30cm apart in sun or partial shade in ordinary well-drained soil. For pot plants, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots, grow cool, well-ventilated and give plenty of light, but shade from direct sun.
