Planting+
Busy Lizzie (Impatiens balsamina) seeds require no prior treatment.
Care+
Water young Busy Lizzies (Impatiens balsamina) only when the surrounding soil feels dry. On a sunny day, this can be as often as three times a week. Make sure they do not dry out.
Young plants are fast growers. As long as they're still growing or in flower, feed them with liquid fertiliser for flowering plants once or twice every two weeks. Once the main stem reaches 7-8 cm, you can nip the tops out of the plant to make it bushier.
 
Flowering
 
These plants will flower from June through to October.
Regular deadheading will encourage new buds to form. Once totally done with flowering, cut hard back (take off 1/3 to 1/2 of the plant) and the plant should once again revive, grow and flower again.
