Impatiens - should I remove the flower buds?

United Kingdom Gb

Should I remove the flower buds from recently transplanted plug plant seedlings, they are about 2-3" tall at present?

I did last year as it was far to early to plant them out. I think it helped to delay them a bit and they flowered well in my tubs later on.
