I have a 14 ft area i want to plant impatiens in. I was thinking of buying 4 six packs. You think this is enough? Unless i plants them closer than 5 six packs. thanks Tura

I think that the rule of thumb is 6-8 inches apart, but mine always get too happy and grow large. Then they are all over each other. I guess it depends on how well they grow in the spot.

I'm a big fan of masses of plants/blooms, so I dig deep, so roots can penetrate easily, and I put plants a bit closer together than is recommended. If your soil is REALLY rich, then they are likely to get very full, and you may not have to plant them closer together.

Mom and I just reading this thread and enjoying the beautiful photo. Wanted to add that when we planted, we staggered the plants for a fuller look.
