Blush pink flowers and compact habit.
This superior busy lizzie with light blush-pink flowers is taking the plant world by storm. SunPatiens are stronger and far more robust than standard impatiens. SunPatiens Compact Blush Pink is compact/mounding variety that is a lot more neat and tidy (unlike the vigorous varieties). Growing to heights of 25-60cm, this SunPatien will give you a more rounded tidy display.
As their name suggests, SunPatiens also have superb weather tolerance with the ability to withstand wind, rain, humidity, scorching heat and cool shade. Sunpatiens are also tolerant to downy mildew on Impatiens. Use one Sunpatien instead of three standard busy lizzie plants to get the same fabulous display. Superb weather tolerance – flourishes in all conditions. Our large plug plants will be very quick to establish. Read our SunPatiens Growing Guide here

General Growing Advice
Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 13cm pots. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks. Water once the compost starts to dry out.
If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.
Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.
Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.
***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.
Plugs arrived in perfect condition. One of the best plant buys I have bought ever. Excellent service too
Absolutely delighted they are now "growing on" in karger pots and just awaiting some sunshine and warmth and we know they'll be lovely. We've just returned to the UK after many years living in France and have grown them there each year. They're a winner.
These are super quality plugs. Arrived well packed and still moist. They were planted out as the frosts have finished in West Sussex. I'm looking forward to the flowers. I haven't used this site before and I will again. A happy new customer.
We have been disappointed so many times before but these plants are lovely arrived in good condition and well packaged
Ordered 10 plants which arrived on time. Good size and and in excellent condition Would definitely buy plants from this nursery again.
Very good plants that seem to be thriving
These young plants arrived in very good condition, looking healthy and strong. Haven't had this variety before so looking forward to seeing them in a month or so.
The plants arrived well packaged & still damp. I was surprised how big the plugs are, & now they are potted in the greenhouse, they are growing really well. I haven't tried these before, but they look really promising.
Strong plants and a new favourite
I’m delighted with the plug plants I ordered. They arrived promptly and in great condition. Thanks for the great service in these difficult times.
