Will my winter pansies ever flower?

Posted: 14/05/2013 at 20:45

I've grown pansies and violas that have taken ages to flower....... I have found that once going if you dead head the flowers they should bush up

Thanks everyone, sounds like this is what they do........not ever grown them before

Thanks nut, they seem so small, took  2 months to germinate them so don't want to lose them. I'm finding it hard to believe that they will grow into  tall plants with flowers this year.

Will leave them be as they are growing where they are and just keep adding water

 

What did you do in your garden today?

That counts Bev as with all plant related activities..........sowed a few more seeds here but that's it..........too wet

Hello everyone,

I've got a lot of little Verbena B seedlings in a couple of small seed trays. They are growing but seem to be very slow. They are still tiny but many have 3 sets of leaves. Is this rate of growth normal for them?

The trays aren't the best and the soil is a bit compacted....but they are growing. Do you think it's best to pot on? will this speed up their growth?

Thanks for any information

Me too, a very enjoyable day spent in my potting shed. Potted on everything I think can be potted on, thinking of sowing some more soon.

Settled in for a bit of "screaming and shouting"  aka corrie & eastenders, might have a look on The Fall on BBC 2. I love a window shop for plants Fairygirl

You get a lot of plants in that space Bev

Hi everyone,

Got several cornflowers and corncockles that have been potted on once and now are becoming large plants. They live outside on the table.  I don't really want to pot on again as I'm running out of space and I could do with their little pots............I'm thinking it's alright to plant out now?
