Propagation by seed

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Sow seeds for V.tricolor and V. wittrockiana in mid to late Summer, either outdoors in a damp shaded site, or boxes placed in a cold frame. Transplant the seedlings into nursery beds, 4 inches apart until they are moved to a flowering site in Autumn. Seedlings sown in the cold frame should be potted up to 3 inch pots of John Innes No 1 and overwintered in the cold frame and moved to the flowering site in Spring

 

Summer or winter flowering

From Late Spring TO Early Spring

The summer flowering hybrids are in bloom from late Spring to early Autumn. Winter flowering varieties usually bloom from mid Winter to mid Spring, occasionally in the Autumn.

 

Planting Outdoors

From Early Autumn TO Late Spring

Plant violas in Autumn or Spring. Plant in any fertile, moist but well drained soil in sun or partial shade.
