The best ever dwarf Viola for containers! A unique mixture of small, attractive bicoloured flowers on very compact plants. Produces masses of flowers over a very long period making it ideal for summer or winter flowering bedding displays.
Sow seeds on the surface of a good, freedraining, damp, seed compost, and apply a fine sprinkling of vermiculite, just covering the seed. Place container in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and place at a warm temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) until after germination which usually takes 10-15 days. Take care not to provide too high a temperature, as this can prevent germination.
Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out 15cm (6in) apart. September sown plants should be verwintered in a coldframe, and planted out the following spring.
