I'm quite new to gardening so please bear with me. I bought a load of 'garden ready' pansies and wallflower from a well known Jersey based plants company, and planted them all in October / November last year. I bought them because of the advertised 'flowers all winter long', but I've not seen a single threat of a flower on any of the 100 + plants I planted. They all look relitivley healthy, but are showing no signs of flowering.
Does anyone have any advice on this, I'd like to know whether there's any point buying these types of garden ready plugs again, indeed pansies in general. I was dying for some winter colour but feel a bit ripped off! Should I leave them be, assuming they will flower eventually, or shall I put it down to experience?
