Impatiens Buds Fall Off Before Opening

Question From: Marlborough, Connecticut, United States
Q: We brought out impatiens plant inside in Oct. Still had and has many flower buds but instead of opening the buds fall off. The plant is not in full sun, and has been kept damp.

A: You may be overwatering it Carole or it may be lack of light or both. Try a grow light and let the surface of the soil dry. Also do not fertilize until March. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
