Dogtooth violets flowers from early to mid Spring

 

Propagating by seed

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Collect the seeds of Dogtooth violets and dry them, then sow in Autumn. It will take 3 years plus before the plants will flower

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Plant in a dappled- shady site, in free-draining soil. Once planted, water well to settle the soil around the plants. Plant 15 cms. apart, in drifts, for best effect.

 

Propagating by division

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Dogtooth violets will multiply by themselves, but slowly! They will multiply better if the dead flowers are removed to stop seed-formation.
