Plant Now: Pansies


Head down to your local garden centre and pick up some potted colour for the winter months. Pansies are my favourite, though you’ll find polyanthus, primulas and calendulas too.

Pansies are a cheerful addition to the winter garden and make pretty posies for indoors. You’ll find them in all colours – from soft pastels to vibrant hues, such as reds, oranges and yellows. Plant seedlings or potted colour in moist, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade.

Pansies, polyanthus and primulas all like humus-rich soil, so dig in plenty of compost or leaf mould at planting time.
