Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow indoors spring or autumn. Once seedlings emerge, pot on and move to a cooler position before planting out into fertile, well-drained soil and watering well. Ideal for containers and edging paths to soften the edges.
Care Tips Incorporate a slow-release fertiliser or give a balanced liquid feed every 2-3 weeks. Deadhead or pick regularly to prolong flowering and maintain a compact shape. If plants become leggy, a mid-season chop in July to 5cm (2in) above ground-level will help promote bushy re-growth.
Flowering October - May
Storing If using the edible flowers for recipes, they will keep for a day or two in the fridge.

Beautiful little plants, but more delicate than other violas. Several succumbed early on.

I didnt get on too well with these, some didn't survive to reach a good size. I expect this was down to me though forgetting about them in the winter weather. 1 plant survived and still going many months later.
