detailed seed-starting info below

First year trying this plant. Thus far (by late June), they are nowhere near the height they're supposed to attain - at most a foot or so. Meanwhile, the Impatiens glandulifera is shooting up tall nearby. The leaves of the two species are similar, as is the shape of the flowers. I just hope that by season's end I won't have to get down on my knees to appreciate the flowers!

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
