Product Description

The Busy Lizzie is back! The number-one bedding plant grown in the UK for years is making a return with a breeding breakthrough of mildew resistnce to bring a riot of summer-long colour to your garden.

We are extremely excited to be able to bring this Busy Lizzie to you and we're sure you'll be just as keen to have them in your garden where their reliability and proven performance make Imara (R) Impatiens a top choice.

One of the most popular bedding plants, the Imara (R) series of Busy Lizzie (impatiens walleriana) is guaranteed to excel in UK gardens, rain or shine, sun or shade! During intensive, large-scale trialling, Imara (R) out-performed other varieties even when exposed to downy mildew, growing superbly and lasting until the first frosts.

Initial growing trials have shown a natural resistance to downy mildew greater than other Busy Lizzie varieties currently available, and we have been particularly impressed with how well these garden favourites have grown and flowered reliably.

Robust and durable, plants are top performers in the garden with reliable, consistent growth and summer-long flowering in a great range of dazzling colours: white, red, rose, violet, orange, and orange star.

Unlike many other bedding plants, Busy Lizzies will thrive in shade as well as a sunny position and make superb arrangements in both baskets and pots - plus they're a great filler in the flower border, where they quickly plug gaps between plants.

Supplied as 20 Garden Ready Plug Plants - we've done all the initial work for you, so you can plant them straight out. when risk of frost has passed.

What Is Supplied

Item 400757 supplied as:
Supplied as 20 Garden Ready Plug Plants, big enough to plant straight out once frost risk has passed.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Deadhead faded blooms to prolong flowering.
Space plants out to keep them compact - the more tightly they are packed, the taller they will grow. 20-30cm (8-12in)

Care Guide

  • Allow plants to harden off for a week or so before planting out, and only do so when all risk of frost has passed.
  • Plant in containers with a good, multipurpose compost or in the flower border in fertile soil - it helps to dig in plenty of well-rotted organic matter.
  • Plant in full sun or partial shade.
  • Water regularly, preferably from under the plant, and remember that containers will require more regular watering.
  • Feed with a general-purpose feed once a week when in bloom.
