Impatiens bedding plant
It looks like this year impatiens downy mildew is taking a hold and
many garden centres have had their stock wiped out. Impatiens are also
known as busy lizzies.
We're not sure exactly what the situation is at Jersey Plants but will
update you when we know.
Downy Mildew on bedding plants can be a problem in damp summers. This
sort of disease is plant specific usually though so if one type of plant
is affected other different ones won't be.
The plants need time to dry off after the rain and so in damp weather
they don't get chance to. If you water the ground and not the plant
you can reduce the risk.
Once your bedding plants have a downy mildew though you need to bear
this in mind for next years display. It's probably wise to avoid that
particular plant for a couple of years unless you fancy going to the
trouble and expense of sterilising all your soil in your garden beds.
You can wash down paths and trays with something like Jeyes Fluid which
is designed for disinfecting pots and the like.
You can throw the plants away into the compost if you have a big heap
they will soon be broken down by the heat of the pile. There is a school
of thought that you should never put anything bad in the compost heap
but it is up to you.
Next year try another type of plants.
Jersey Plants Direct has many impatiens plants available in plug, garden
ready, super garden ready plants as well as seeds.
