maybe it's the soil quality. when you're ready to plant look up places that sell humus or "living compost" around your area. basically it's a soil rich in beneficial bacteria & microbes that will provide nutrients to your plants- go organic. also, you might want to read up on the best growing conditions for the plant/s you're trying to flourish.

When cultivating something, whatever it is. Check the time of the year, weather condition and moon condition as well. Than find a place to prepare, analyze the soil condition, and territory. Also find out about possible insects, and pests that may harm your cultivation. After you have done that, build a maintenance plan, you need to be prepared, and than do the cultivation.
Only when you take all of the above in proper consideration will you succeed on cultivating just about anything; otherwise, you will fail. For growing plants of any kind, is to manage nature itself. For that you will need to understand a little of nature, if you do not, do not even try it. That is why most professional Agriculturists in the U.S.A are Mexicans, because they grow up in the field.
You have to also check the sun, how much does the plant be getting, and at what time of the day will that sunshine be stronger or lighter. The wind as well, how strong is the wind, and how is it, hot or cold. Every plant reacts differently to it's own environment, that is why you need to analyze the soil condition, the time of the year and the moon as well. Because nature works in group within nature itself.
For example banana trees can be planted on May during the full moon time of the year, into a rich dark soil. The territory needs to be at a low-windy side, because banana trees grow tall and heavy, it is easy for it to break, especially when it's producing bananas. Think of it as a jungle environment, that is when banana trees do amazingly well.

Impatiens do not "just die"Impatiens are ready for planting at your home after 6-8 weeks of growth at the nursery. Thus, they have already survived these early days where some individual plants may dieIn your landscape, there are only 3 basic things that can make things go wrong: Not enough water Too much water FungusWater is the most important ingredientConsistent moisture is the trick to premium impatien flowers. Never let impatiens get dried out. Do not rely 100% on your sprinkler system for impatiens. Look at your flowers every day and notice if there are any "missed" irrigation spots among your flowers. Hand watering with your hose assures complete coverageNever over water as too much wetness will rot your roots or cause black fungus. Both conditions are deadly to your flowers. If we get a period of daily ongoing rains, manually shut off your sprinkler system to cut back on unnecessary waterImpatiens in the shade & East/North sidesImpatiens in the shade require much less water than South or West sun exposures. This is another reason to not rely on your sprinkler system for water. If you have impatiens in the shade and some in the sun, use less water in shady locationsImpatiens in the sun & South/West sidesExpect to water often, depending on how hot, windy and sunny the conditions. Water moderately as often as every day to keep soil consistently moistImpatiens in potsImpatiens in pots can be difficult. In just one day, pots can become dried out or over wet. Fungus can start more easily in pots as wellSmaller pots are much more difficult to water properly than larger well drained containers. Impatiens often do poorly in smaller pots. The rule is "the bigger the better" when planting in potsStick your index finger into your flower pots' soil down to the second knuckle to test for moisture. You'll be feeling the soil 1 3/4 to 2 inches down. If it's moist at that depth, water is not needed that day. Check pots every two days until you know what you're doing by sightImpatiens in pots - use good soil which is very loose, very well drainedWhat is sold as "potting soil" at about $1.49 per bag is a very dense, heavy, wet mixture, basically composed of muck and sand. Never buy this mix. Look for bags of professional mix which cost from $4.00-$6.00 per bag for small bags and up to $12.00 per bag for larger quantities. This mix is dry, light, disease free and an excellent medium for your impatiens. The label will say 'Nursery Mix' or 'Pro Mix', but look for higher price as your first indication of what to buyImpatiens under larger treesGrowing impatiens under some trees such as Black Olive and Ficus is difficult and sometimes impossibleThese trees cast a heavy shade depriving your flowers of light. Some trees tend to "poison" your soil over time. Consider hiring a tree man to "open up" your tree's canopy for more light. Also, you can/should add new soil (a high quality nursery mix, not potting soil) to the base of trees to plant your impatien flowersImpatiens and mulchMaster Gardener strongly recommends you DO NOT mulch your impatiensOne reason is impatiens grow quickly and fill in open spaces between plants. This fast growth (with fertilizer) naturally shades the soil and keeps down weeds. Impatiens usually grow faster than weeds. More importantly, mulch can contribute to fungus by holding too much moisture at the base of flower stems. Just one or two days of excess wetness at the stem/soil level can kill all your beautiful impatien flowersThe exception to the "no mulch" rule is in full sun. In full sun you can safely mulch (thin layer about 1/4 to 3/8 inch) but keep the mulch away from the stems of the flowersImpatiens benefit greatly from foodYou must feed your flowers fertilizer to get the lush full look you wantIf you ordered your impatiens planted by Master Gardener, we automatically fertilize every plant free with a generous handful of Milorganite fertilizer combined with a generous dose of time release pellets, 14-14-14. Milorganite is an organic gradual release fertilizer which feeds slowly for the whole blooming seasonIf you want even better performance from your impatiens, add a quality time-released fertilizer, comes in pellet form. You'll get your best flowers. http://mgonline.com/articles/g rowbestimps.aspx
