Starting Impatiens From Seed

March 18th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Anybody else tired of paying high dollar for Impatiens?

If you have the space under the grow lights or in the greenhouse, you can benefit from starting them from seed.  I started a tray of them three to five days ago now (early to mid March) and they are starting to sprout up nicely.  Considering they can survive many types of soil, I imagine once I get them sprouted and off to a good start, they should be easy to take care of from there on in.  I don’t want to speak too soon but I can’t wait get them in the ground when the time comes. I’m not even going to say it (that I’m getting well…I can’t say it ; )

I am getting that feeling of spring, that it is flying right on in without notice, but I am noticing and am trying to prepare the best I can (when I can). I am starting many seeds indoors.  I have expanded my grow room by adding shelves and hanging fluorescent light fixtures.  Complete with a min-heater and a timer, Ill just need to add water.  The warm temperature is key to keep a high percentage of germination.

I will post photos of my Impatiens sprouting from seed once I get them in the ground.

I will look to gather seeds from my Impatiens at the end of the year as well.
