    I was given a hanging basket for Mothers Day.
    This was Double Impatient.
    I noticed that the leaves where black at the tip on receiving it.
    Since then all the leaves have gradually turned yellow and they drop off. There has been no new growth on the flower.
    Now it has tall leafless stems and few flowers.
    It is kept in a Westerley position. Morning sun only.
    It has been watered carefully and fed twice. I have also grown my
    own hanging baskets which are great.
    What could be the problem with this hanging basket.

    Hanging Baskets

    Sounds like the plant your received may have a fungus such as leaf spot. At this point there is not too much that can be done but to seperate it from the healthy hanging baskets to prevent the spread of the fungus.
