More Details

I hope I have not said it too often with the new introductions in this catalogue, but this truly is one of my favourite discoveries of our trials last year. I always loved Tiger's Eye stones as a girl and I love these sultry, exotic, glamorous viola flowers just as much.

They make some of the best-ever small table centre pot fillers, and are truly marvellous cut and arranged in mini glasses, for scattering all around the house. Prolifically cut-and-come-again, these keep on flowering for months at a stretch almost whenever you sow them.

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 September - June
Harvesting Flower production: 8-9 months
