Winter flowering violas

Posted: 08/06/2013 at 14:31

i have just bought some victorian violas from holker garden festival they are summer flowering but the advice i was given may be of some use 

1. plant in John Innes no2

after flowering all summer they need to rest so cut back hard and top up with new compost, so if yours have flowered all winter untill now i would cut them back,repot if they look congested and give them a feed. you may be able to split them im not sure about that.

violas are not annuals like the bedding pansy they should last for a long time if looked after
