I had horrible luck last year.....though they were impatients. Went to Wojos this year, and I bought 20 flats, they ended up giving me 50 because they were so bad. And now the 25~ that are in the ground look like ****.

Went to another place (for another job) paid more, but got nice flowers.

Alex, contact your insurance agency directly and start putting the pressure on them. You don't have to accept what they offer. When i was hit we negotiated for 3 months before I settled with them. I still have your # so I will text you now.

I won't plant impatiens until they develop a downy mildew resistant variety. If you lost impatiens last year to downy, and re-plant this year in the same spot, you will lose them again. Downy remains in the soil and is pretty resistant to fungicides (Lord knows I tried dang near everything).

I didn't plant impatiens this year. I was speaking of last years batch from Bordines not doing very well from the get go, but I imagine that was because they got mildew early on, and the whole neighborhood lost their impatiens very early (August we pulled them)
