Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
The best ever dwarf Viola for containers! A unique mixture of small, attractive bicoloured flowers resembling tiny sweets. Compact plants are smothered in masses of flowers over a very long period, making it ideal for summer or winter flowering bedding displays.

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.

Sowing Months Flowering Months
Feed and water frequently to promote an endless supply of flowers. Deadhead faded pansy flowers before they set seed to prolong the flowering period.

Sow pansies and violas from spring to autumn on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Spring sowings will give flowers during early summer, whilst summer and autumn sowings will bloom the following winter or spring.

Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 15-20C (59-68F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Take care not to provide too high a temperature, as this can prevent germination. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 14-21 days.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When viola and pansy plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant into well drained soil in baskets and containers outdoors in full sun or semi-shade. Over winter autumn sowings in a cold frame then plant out the following spring.

Great little plant... 2013-10-08

I wasn't a great fan of viola but these will always be in my garden from now on. Abundance of lovely blooms for such a long period. Mine are in containers and must have plenty of water otherwise they droop quite quickly but recover virtually immediately. Have given a lot of pleasure over the last few months.. Definitely recommended.

Lovely 2012-07-29

Such a sweet looking plant, compact when planted together and if planted between other plants (of the same height), they tend to grow just a little bigger showing their pretty flowers just above them. A must have for your garden, i will be buying these again next year, fantastic. blocked as duplicate review
