The Highlights

    • Stunning vibrant Fuchsia pink flowers
    • Fill a pot or basket with profusions of blooms
    • High resistance to Downy Mildew
    • Perfect plant for shady spots in the garden
    • Vigorous, healthy and easy to grow plants
    • Cutting-Raised: more healthy and vigorous plants When a plant is 'Cutting-Raised' that means the plant was grown from the cutting of another plant of that same variety. That means it is an exact clone of that plant. Of course, we pick only the strongest and healthiest plants to take cuttings from and so when a plant is Cutting-Raised they tend to be healthier and more vigorous which means they'll flower more heavily for a longer period of time than a plant that was raised from seed.MORE
    • For best results, plant 12 in a 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in the a bed/ border
    • Our jumbo plugs will be delivered in mid April. By this time, they will be a good size, the risk of frost will be gone and the ground will be warm and they will shoot off!

Care Guide

Excellent Pest and Disease Resistance

The big scourge of Impatiens is the dreaded Downy Mildew. Beacon, however, has been specifically bred to be naturally resistant to this fungal disease. There may be occasional issues with Aphids. In which case, check the leaves regularly for any possible infestation. If you see some, try to pick the bugs off with your hands and spray the infected area with some soapy water. You can also plant a companion plant nearby, such as Marigolds, which will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the aphids.MORE

Water Regularly

Water to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot, dry spells, this can require you to water the plant every day, especially if the plant is in a hanging basket or pot.MORE

Part to Full Shade

Impatiens prefer shady spots and will struggle with prolonged periods of direct sunlight.MORE

Fertile, Well-Draining Soil

The best soil to use is a quality potting mix or garden compost which is filled with rich organic matter and drains water away easily.MORE

Feed Regularly

Feed every two weeks during the growing period with a high-potash feed such as liquid-tomato feed.MORE

Not Required

Put the tools down, no pruning required!MORE

Spacing:

12 per 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in the a bed/ border
A good rule of thumb when planting a hanging basket is to use one plant per inch of basket diameter - so 12 plants per 12 inch (30cm) basket. Strong-growing plants such as Fuchsias and Geraniums (Pelargoniums) require more space, so reduce to 5 plants per 30cm 12 inch (30cm) basket. When planting out in the ground, you can space the plants even further, as there is not such a need for a desnse display. Increase to 6 inches for most annuals and 8 inches for the strong growing plants
