Signs Of Life...

...these bloomed this week from what I thought was a pretty dead basket.

Oh, I don't know, looks a bit tired to me still.

Basket case !

Isn't it better than nothing?

sometimes small packages are just as dynamic as the larger ones.

It won't take long for that Impatiens to fill the basket with colour, making all the difference!

Excellent, someone with knowledge ! Just what I needed, because I can't find the little card that came with it when we bought it and you've come to the rescue !

It's funny that it's Impatiens, sounds too much like impatience, or is that fate ?
.........cos I'm peering into that basket every time I walk past it, and nothing much seems to happen, until now I suppose !

Thanks Xela

Woah, hold on there Kev, I am just an enthusiastic amateur with a spattering of knowledge. Impatiens were one of the first plants I grew. They were so easy to grow from seed, didn't mind being house plants and flowered their heads off. Mine seemed to grow rather leggy, then someone told me to pinch them when they became leggy, remove the flower buds from the bits removed from the plant and root them simply in water ....... behold, the old plant bushed and the 'cuttings' became new plants!! No wonder their common name is 'Busy Lizzie'.
