Impatience...A Flower of My Past

For the past 4 years, I had been planting Impatience
along my garden room and deck.  At least 11 trays of 48
plants were planted each year in this beautiful space.
You can do the math!

This year however; the man at the greenhouse told
me of a blight that had infected the Impatience.  He
suggested trying Begonias.  I was very reluctant to do so
but I am glad I did!.  The Begonias filled in beautifully. 
During this summer of much drought and heat, these plants held
up under these extreme conditions.

So...before planting impatience and taking the
chance of having them not survive and infect your soil,
please consider Begonias!  They are so lovely, colorful,
hardy and show off their blooms for all to see!
