Viola Advice

Violas are great for you autumn and winter flower beds and containers due to their fantastic nature to flower even in the colder months. Here are a few tips in helping them to flower for longer and produce great healthy flowers –
• When you receive your Violas make sure you’ve grown them on in suitable pots or cell trays with good quality compost to help the roots mature before planting them in their final growing position. We use 10cm grower pots or 6 cell grower trays here in our nursery to grow these on. The best way to know these are ready is when the roots are touching the sides of the cells or pot.
• When planting make sure they have an area that has plenty of sunlight or at the most only partly shaded as the flowers will grow towards the sunlight.
• Try and plant your Violas around 15cms apart keeping the base of the stem at soil level. Once planted make sure you use a good feed to encourage the best growth and flowering. We recommend Neudorff Organic Multi Purpose Plant Feed, great for encouraging bigger blooms and longer lasting flowers and also pet and child safe.
• Careful attention to the pruning of Viola’s will help them grow for longer, when the flower starts to fade then take the head off to encourage more flowering.

Plug plants packed well, and in excellent condition. Planted some, although small of course, in pots on patio. A regular squirrel visits these pots regularly to forage, so far these small violas have survived !
Very happy with purchase.

Great quality plugs
Wednesday, 21 October 2020  | 

I was a little nervous ordering plugs, as a previous experience I had with another supplier resulted in poor quality plugs, so I was delighted when I opened up my delivery box and found super healthy looking plants (I ordered 4 different trays of violets and pansies). All now potted on and thriving wonderfully, with no losses!! Thank you!
