Learn how to fertilize impatiens for constant blooms all summer long! This guide includes fertilizing techniques and my recommended brands.

Fertilizer Numbers Fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium which play major roles in the overall health of the impatiens.

Organic vs. Synthetic Organic fertilizer is derived from plant, animal, and mineral sources. Synthetic fertilizer is lab-created and can be tailored to specific plant needs, but it might not help your overall soil health.

Liquid vs. Granular Liquid fertilizer is used to boost nutrients directly to the plant via roots or leaves. Granular fertilizer is sprinkled on the soil to breakdown over time, and will supply nutrients over weeks or months.

When to Fertilize For quick release fertilizer, every 2-4 weeks as needed. For slow release fertilizer, once at the beginning and then again midway through the season.

Fertilizer Application For granular, apply on top of soil avoiding the stems of your impatiens. For liquid, mix your formula and apply directly to the root by drenching the soil.

Warning Signs Check for warning signs like yellowing leaves, less blooms, and weak stems to adjust your fertilizing regimen.
