Description Sowing More Info Delivery
Illuminate your garden with the tropical tones of Busy Lizzie 'Beacon Mixed’. Busy Lizzies are back on trend, flaunting exotic colours, long flowering times and lush leaves. These easy to grow and reliable plants do well in pots or borders, in sun or partial shade and will reward very little effort with bright splashy flowers all summer long. Exceptionally long flowering, you can expect continuous blooms throughout summer and into autumn. These well branched, free flowering annuals come from the latest breeding in disease free Impatiens, with excellent resistance to downy mildew. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 35cm (14”).


1 Packet (25 Seeds) (KB4565)

Sow Busy Lizzie seed from February to April on the surface of a good seed compost, and cover with a light sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at a temperature of 21-24C (70-75F) or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14- 21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

When Impatiens seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When Busy Lizzie plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days with shade from direct sun before planting them outdoors in their final positions. Grow Busy Lizzies in sun or semi shade in any fertile, well drained soil.

Feed and water frequently throughout the summer to promote an endless supply of colourful Busy Lizzie flowers.
