Impatiens Logro Mix

Impatiens (Impatiens Walleriana Logro Mix) - Grow Impatiens seeds to supply color for all the shady areas in your landscape. This Logro Impatiens Mix is great for containers, baskets and the front of the shady border. The Impatiens plants are compact and full of color all growing season. These low growing Impatiens are sure to find a place to add some color - on the porch, deck or fill baskets and window boxes with these heavy blooming flowers. Impatiens flowers stand up to heat and humidity too!

How To Grow Impatiens From Flower Seeds: Sow Impatiens seeds indoors 8 - 10 weeks before the last frost is expected. Use starter trays and good starter soil that has been pre-moistened with warm water. Sow flower seeds into the cells, press into soil but do not cover. Cover the trays loosely with plastic wrap to keep the moisture and heat in. Remove the wrap to mist the Impatiens seeds regularly. Place the trays in a warm place that is bright, but avoid direct sunlight. Once germination has occurred, remove the plastic wrap and grow on in a bright, south facing window. Harden the plants off for 10 - 14 days and transplant Impatiens seedlings into containers or the garden 8 - 12 inches apart after all danger of frost has passed.

Overwintering Coleus

I lost track of this thread - I, too, cut back my coleus and fill vases and jars and whatever else I can find to stuff them into.
I have the perfect east room for them to brighten the dreary winter months.
Impatiens can also be cut and rooted in this manner - I just this afternoon finished trimming back all of the plants in my garden for just this purpose.
Keep them pinched back so they get nice and full.
When I was young, my mom and the neighbor lady were the 'plant ladies' of the small town we lived in - what one didn't have, the other one did.
Mom still has (after all these years) an Impatiens (that we knew as a Sultana at that time) that I brought her home from school - I had noticed that my teacher at that time had a salmon colored one that she agreed...

Most everything

We live at Southshore Alameda. Here's some of what we've put in since we moved here in 2002. Existing was a lawn in front yard and in back yard two non-fruiting plum trees, one lemon tree, and a camelia.
Back yard (mostly concrete slab with a two-foot dirt border around outside):
Red sage about 8' tall in corner.
Tree dahlia 10' tall almost obliterating neighbor's yard.
Three columnar apple trees.
Black dahlia in bloom now.
Senecia from cutting I took from our old Oakland house.
"Cabbage" Tree recently transplanted from container-we have 90% of our plants in containers in back yard due to concrete slab
