Plant impatiens transplants after the last spring frost. See your local frost dates.

Impatiens prefer humus-rich, moist, and well-drained soil. Make sure the plants have some shelter from the wind.

The closer impatiens plants are, the taller they will grow, so space accordingly (impatiens plants can grown anywhere between 6 and 30 inches tall). For flower beds, plant 8 to 12 inches apart so the plants will stay low to the ground.

You can mix in compost or a slow-release fertilizer before transplanting to help the plants.

If you have impatiens plants in containers, like window boxes, use a sterile or soil-less growing mixture to ensure better drainage for the plants.
