GROWING INSTRUCTIONS (Included on packet):
For spring planting, a 30 day cold stratification is needed before sowing. Start Impatiens seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date, or direct sow outdoors after the last frost. Sow seeds 1/8" deep in well-draining soil and keep the soil moist but not soggy. Maintain a temperature of 70-75°F (21-24°C) for best germination. Seeds should germinate within 10-20 days. Once seedlings have developed two sets of true leaves, transplant them outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Space plants 9-12 inches apart in a partially shaded location. Water regularly, ensuring the soil remains consistently moist.
