Autumn and winter flowering selection.
A breakthrough in modern Pansy breeding, these large flowering Pansies have been proven to give outstanding performance for maximum satisfaction in both beds and borders and patio containers. Easy to grow. This series retains pansies’ wonderful cold tolerance, but when the weather is hot and older varieties of pansies become floppy with few blooms, the Matrix pansies will tend to remain well branched, squat and floriferous. As well, the petioles (stems that hold the flowers) don’t become overly stretched, so the flowers remain upright and beautifully displayed. These new pansies are beautiful and tough, requiring virtually no maintenance other than regular watering and a bit of fertiliser and should continue to look great all year. The colour range is fantastic too.
PLEASE NOTE - flowering times will vary depending on the time they are planted. For autumn flowering you will need to plant these in either grower cell trays or small grower pots for around 4 weeks to allow for root establishment and then they will be ready for you to put in their final place. If you buy these from October onwards ready for spring flowering these need to be grown on in grower cell trays or pots throughout the winter before planting in their final place early spring, they should be left outside to harden them off throughout the winter months. Here is an idea of when they will then begin to flower for you -
If planting early August flowering time will be early September
If planting Mid August flowering time will be late September
If planting late August flowering time will be early October
If planting early September flowering time will be late October
If planting early October flowering time will be early Spring
If planting late October onwards flowering time will be late Spring.
Due to their hardy nature these will flower again in the following autumn as long as they are looked after during the months they are not flowering
