Description

Mahogany flowers have long been some of my favourites and particularly when that colour is brightened and heightened by gold as it is in this beautiful pansy, ‘Sorbet Honeybee’. The more you pick for the vase or to scatter over salads, the more this flowers. Sow in spring for summer picking or summer, to have it in pots in late into autumn and early in spring.

Care Tips

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.
