Pansies are a beautiful flower that can be planted in numerous places within the garden; in borders, hanging baskets, pots and containers. They vary in colour, all bright and eye catching.
A hardy biennial/perennial, pansy seeds needs to be sown between May and July outdoors to bloom over the following spring. Alternatively you can sow them under glass between February and April to provide you with some lovely flowers between May and September that same year!
Your pansy seeds should germinate within 10 to 21 days. If sowing under galls when the young plants begin to develop transplant them into trays 5cm apart. Then the pansy plants need to be acclimatised to outside conditions before planting out at 26cm apart.
