Sowing Sow in pots or trays in a good seed compost under glass at 24-25°C. Cover with glass or polythene to maintain humidity. Planting As soon as seedlings emerge, remove the cover. When seedlings are about 4cm (1½”) tall, prick off onto trays 5cm (2”) apart or individually into pots. Grow on and gradually harden off before planting out 30-40cm (12-16”) apart in May. Other Instructions Impatiens require regular watering. Do not overfeed as this causes lush foliage at the expense of flowers.

These are great plants for growing in containers and for cut flowers. Marguerites produce masses of fragrant, Chrysanthemum-like flowers from mid spring until autumn that attract many types of butterflies. Pinch the tips regularly until the flower buds appear in late spring to encourage a compact growing habit. Marguerites can be cut back at any time during the growing season to promote new growth and fresh blooms.
