Impatiens bedding plant at BeddingPlantOffers.co.uk


Impatiens are commonly known as Busy Lizzies

Impatiens don't mind some shade at all!

They like plenty of water though but don't over water!

Victorians often used them as house plants.

They are from the balsaminaceae family - that is the Balsam family and originated from the Usambara Mountains

Impatiens bedding plant

It looks like this year impatiens downy mildew is taking a hold and many garden centres have had their stock wiped out. Impatiens are also known as busy lizzies.

We're not sure exactly what the situation is at Jersey Plants but will update you when we know.

Downy Mildew on bedding plants can be a problem in damp summers. This sort of disease is plant specific usually though so if one type of plant is affected other different ones won't be.

The plants need time to dry off after the rain and so in damp weather they don't get chance to. If you water the ground and not the plant you can reduce the risk.

Once your bedding plants have a downy mildew though you need to bear this in mind for next years display. It's probably wise to avoid that particular plant for a couple of years unless you fancy going to the trouble and expense of sterilising all your soil in your garden beds. You can wash down paths and trays with something like Jeyes Fluid which is designed for disinfecting pots and the like.

You can throw the plants away into the compost if you have a big heap they will soon be broken down by the heat of the pile. There is a school of thought that you should never put anything bad in the compost heap but it is up to you.

Next year try another type of plants.
