Touch-me-nots

An annual plant with pink, white, lilac or crimson flowers growing along the stem. Each blossom has a columbine-like spur on the back. Sometimes called Touch-Me-Not as seeds explode from ripe pods when touched. I got some of the Touch-me-not which is a kind of inpatients or Balsam plant. I have put some in my new flower garden but I decided to put the rest up near the house so they will have shade in the evening. I will put them in the ground when the sun goes over the yard arm.

I planted gourds yesterday. I am going to plant Kentucky Wonder Pole beans in two rows of my corn.

Can these be planted in a concrete flower box?
