<![CDATA[replacement for Impatients]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/537/replacement-for-impatients Dos anyone have a good replacement for Impatiens?  I lost all mine last year to the disease that I'm just now learning about.  Seems we might not have impatiens in the future if no cure is found.  My yard is shady and so far I've only had luck with Hostas and ferns, but need some color.  I grow the impatiens in pots so my dogs won't trample them.  They do enough damage to the Hostas & ferms. Suggestions welcome.

<![CDATA[Questions about pruning or deadheading? ]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/12/questions-about-pruning-or-deadheading- Summer heat can make many flowers grow long and leggy. Pruning or deadheading annuals and perennials can keep plants looking lush and healthy by promoting growth, preventing spreading and creating stronger, bushier plants. Do you have questions about pruning or deadheading your plants? If so, share them below. Our garden experts are standing by.

<![CDATA[HELP! My New Guinea Impatiens are drooping.]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/366/help%21-my-new-guinea-impatiens-are-drooping I bought a beautiful large basket of New Guinea Impatiens this weekend (expensive) and planted in a large pot on my Zone 6 front steps.  I used a very good potting mix and watered in well with Miracle Grow in the water.  By the next morning my New Guinea Impatiens were drooping over and loosing flowers!  The temperature did go down to the mid 50's overnight.  Could this have been the reason that they are now drooping over, and loosing their flowers?  The temperatures in my Zone 6 area are hovering between the mid 50's and the low 70's.  If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

<![CDATA[Lily?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/14/lily I planted this, what I think is a Lily around 3 or 4 years back. Thought it might be a Easter Lily but, they don't quite look the same. I made a video of it, check it out here. Any ideas of what it might be?

<![CDATA[Help, with my Caladiums]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/15/help%2C-with-my-caladiums I live in Zone 6, the suburbs outside of Philly, and I have a question concerning my caladium tubers.  I planted a new batch of caladium tubers in a very large flower pot (about 3 ft. high, and 2 ft. wide) on my front steps 3 weeks ago.  I am watering them with a mild solution of water and miracle grow, but I am not seeing any signs of life.  Do caladiums need more time to grow?  Have I planted them too early?  Am I doing something wrong?  Can someone give me some suggestions as to how I can help them to grow.  HELP, PLEASE!

<![CDATA[How & when to harden off my new plants.]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/17/how-%26-when-to-harden-off-my-new-plants I'm a first-time seed grower this year.  I've planted zinnea, marigold, impatiens and a few other annuals from seed inside the house, and all have sprouted and seem to be doing well.  The zinneas are already about 2 inches tall.  This gets me to the point where I'm starting to ask myself, "What next?"  I don't plan to put these in the ground until mid-May, and I realize they have a way to go until then, and that I have to "harden off" them before I plant them.  So when do I start the harden off process?  Do I need a cold frame?  Do I put them outside during the day and inside in the evening and on cold days/nights?  I'm looking for some expert advice!

Thanks!

<![CDATA[Climbing Shade Annual?]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/322/climbing-shade-annual Are there any climbing annuals that will flower in the shade? 

The area I'm looking to fill is under a 10 foot high deck and gets at most 1 hour of sunlight a day.
