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.

Excellent quality Violas that have all flowered while growing on. Look amazing in the front garden with passers by commenting on the colour. Hope they are as good in the spring.

Cracking little plugs plants delivered straight to my front door! 40 for 7.99 was an absolute bargain. I've just finished potting them up in various wall mounted pots and the colour is to die for. I will definitely order plants from Brookside nurseries in the near future. Well recommended.

I thought the plugs very small on arrival. I have pricked out and they are growing on very well, sturdy and should be fine for window boxes soon.

Received the viola plugs from Brookside two weeks ago, they were in perfect condition although 3 were rather small. All of the plugs look really healthy and have doubled in size in a fortnight. Very pleased with this product and will buy more plugs from Brookside in the Spring.

Good, healthy looking plug plants

It is a bit early to say how they will fare. But the plants are healthy looking and have been potted on into 31/2 pots and sitting in an unseated greenhouse. They look absolutely fine.
