Had hunny drill holes in bottom of boots for drainage. Stuffed toes w/plastic shopping bags, Cut the fingers off leaky kitchen gloves (glad I had PINK) Tied bottom of gloves w/cable tie. Filled w/potting soil and dug up a couple of Impatiens that came up all by themselves from last year's flowers & plunked them in the boots. (glad they were Pink too) WOH LAH!!

adorable. But I just don't 'get' the glove part.?? maybe it is too early for me. thanks for
All of my EE over wintered but they are t-i-n-y. And I had purchased some of the largest varieties. I have fertilized, it helped a little but they are not what the were last year, very
sad. Any idea on how to pep them up? BTW, It's the same for the ee in pots and the ones in the ground. I haven't taken a picture to post, they are so puny. I'll take some tomorrow and post the little guys.

Did you cut them down in the fall? These are evergreen and should not be cut, just clean up
the underleaves in the spring. Normi, Master Gardener
