Pansies
« on: May 23, 2020, 10:11 »
My wife loves her pansies in the spring and normally buys anything up to a hundred fo them from the local garden center... at some cost! I though, being the thrifty type :lol: , I would have a bash growing from seed and saving about 50 at least. My question is when to sow the seeds so plants will be ready to go out into the ground in say early November ?

never grown from seed but have got excellent results by buying plug plants. I use several diff suppliers and as the adverts and offers drop onto my email or facebook I then decide and get some on order. Cost per plant works out very low. Will be doing same later this year for violas as they are a lovely show in pots and baskets. Have also done for bergonias etc. Once plugs arrive I set out in module trays and put in greenhouse to let mature and they are easy to plant out from the modules. Best of luck.
