New Guinea Impatiens Divine are the next generation of high quality seed raised New Guinea Busy Lizzie plug plants. They are highly resistant to Impatiens Downy Mildew that has recently been causing problems with seed raised busy lizzies. Impatiens Divine need warm temperatures and good light levels for the first few weeks after planting. We do not recommend choosing early delivery dates for this item unless you are able to provide good heated greenhouse conditions. Divine busy lizzies have giant flowers, up to twice the size of usual busy lizzie flowers. Compact plants with green to bronze foliage providing an excellent contrast to the spectacular mixture of bright flowers which bloom all season long.

Our Plug Plants

Our plug plants are supplied in four sizes; small, medium, large and jumbo plugs....
The foliage height will differ depending on variety.

Small Plugs - Trays of 40
The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 2.3cm deep x 1.3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Medium Plugs - Trays of 20
Our brassicas and lettuce are sold as medium plugs. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Large Plugs - Packs of 5
Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants, individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4cm deep x 3.5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm depending on variety)

Jumbo  Plugs - Packs of 3
Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plans would benefit from potting into large pots (5” upwards”) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm depending on variety)

Maintain a just compost, drying out will cause flower abortion, while wet compost will cause the plant to stretch and reduce flowering. Plants require good light but shade lightly on very bright days to keep flowers above the foliage and prevent leaf burn. Space plants well in their growing environment to avoid stretching.

 Good hygiene should be maintained throughout the growing phase. Try not to get the compost too wet and allow the plants as much light as possible. Maintain temperature levels and avoid leaving plants wet late in the day to prevent growth tip abortion. Gradually acclimatise plants to the outside conditions by placing in a sheltered place during the day and bring them back inside at night. Watch out for cold winds as well as pets, birds, mice etc. After all risk of frost has passed they can be left out or planted into their final flowering position for you to enjoy.

 

Impatiens grow well in semi-shade and make excellent long-lasting summer colour plants in tubs, pots, baskets, pouches as well as beds and borders. They make very good all year round house plants and can be over wintered in a cool room indoors or a frost free greenhouse. Regular feeding about once a week will ensure blooms all summer.

 

Pest and disease: Keep a eye out for greenfly, Whitefly, Red Spider Mite (Two spotted Mite) and other pests. If they become a problem, use a recommended proprietary brand of insecticide. Botrytis (grey mould) may affect the flower buds and cause them to drop, so try to avoid watering from above and increase the ventilation. Pick off any badly affected flowers and spray with a recommended proprietary

brand of fungicide. Don't forget to deadhead and remove any damaged flowers or leaves. Deadheading will promote more flowers and help reduce the spread of any pests or disease.
