Where’s the summer gone?

Posted by Wisley Plant Centre on 31 Jul 2009 at 01:08 PM

What we need is busy lizzies to brighten our gardens!   If you visit RHS Wisley this summer you can’t help but notice the two fabulous towers of colour on the terrace at the entrance into the gardens.
These plants look like New Guinea busy lizzies but in actual fact they are not! They are a new hybrid of Impatiens called Sunpatiens which are much more suitable for growing in our climate. 

SunPatiens® are bedding plants that perform exceptionally well in HEAT, HUMIDITY, RAIN, SUN, SHADE, and both COOL and WARM temperatures unlike New Guinea Impatiens which are much fussier.  They are vigorous, compact and slightly spreading and the colour lasts for ages. What more could you want!
We have them available in a pink, white and an orange/red and they are £4.50 each in a 2 litre pot.
Here you can see Brenda proudly presenting one of her top sellers this week!
The towers at the Garden entrance have been produced by growing the plants in a hanging bag type system with irrigation but they are equally as happy in the ground or in containers for summer bedding.
If you wish to overwinter some plants then take cuttings late summer.
 Flowers will last right up until the first frosts so plant now for a dazzling late summer and early autumn blaze of colour in your garden.
