Perennial & Biennial Seeds


Biennials live for 2 years, whereas perennials live for longer. As a general rule, biennial and perennial seeds should be sown in spring, but some can be sown in autumn as well. Many varieties will self-seed after flowering, giving you even more plants!

Pansy 'Jolly Joker' F2 Hybrid

Viola x wittrockiana

Jolly Joker, awarded the AAS Medal 1990 and the 1990 Fleuroselect Gold Medal, is probably the most spectacular pansy of its class. The intense orange of its lower petals, contrasts sharply with the deep purple of the upper petals. The effect is both unusual and intriguing.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The crystallised petals are great decorations for cakes and cookies, or they can be added straight to green salads for an injection of colour. For more details about edible flowers click here.
