Yes, very late indeed. But my Impatiens tinctoria is finally opening. I got this one at least 4, possibly 5, years ago by Sumjac here (Terry Smith on FB) I think! This is its first year to flower for me. Mind you, it's still in the original pot (a big one) and it has in fact rooted through the drainage holes, and into the gravel outside the glasshouse. I'd best look for a decent space in one of the borders. It's gorgeous.

Wow fair play to your patience. I'd probably have given up br now. Lovely flower.

Gorgeous, well worth waiting for.  Sounds like it's begging to be planted out LOL
