I truly love pansies. At least, I love the soft pink and deep purple pansies of this world. In pots or in the garden, they provide a modicum or mass of beautiful colour. Plant some up in small pots and hang them on gates and fences for a pretty display.
Sow seeds now for autumn and winter colour. Sow them in trays or pots for planting out when big enough.
Pansy ‘Ultima Purple Lace’, in the forth image from the top, has deep-purple velvety flowers with a fine silver lace edge. It’s a knock-out in the garden, ideal for beds or container growing, and even picking for small posies. Seeds are available from Egmont Seeds.
