3. PUTTING THE IMPATIENT FLOWERS IN YOUR GARDEN
Finally after the weather turns hot and friendly enough you can feel free to transport your impatient flowers from your home to your garden in the yard or on the balcony. Every impatient flower comes with a box of some sort. You need to spill as much as possible from that liquid upon the soil in order to make it easy for the flower to establish itself. If you manage to perform the right twist with your hand on the package, the impatient plants will be released from the container into your hand safely and easily. If it doesn’t work the first time try one more time and make sure that there aren’t any roots caught up in the opening in the bottom of the vase. Feel free to remove those roots and release the flower. When you put the flower back in the soil in your garden the roots will grow again longer and stronger.
