How to grow:
If growing viola species such as pansies and violets outdoors from seeds then sow either at the start of autumn or spring. Once sown viola seeds should be lightly covered. Viola species should be planted with a spacing of 20 to 30cm and grown in a partially shaded part of the garden for best results. Ideally the soil that pansy, violet and other viola grow in should be rich, have good drainage, slightly acidic to neutral in pH (5.5 to 7) and moist.
If first growing viola indoors then start about 10 weeks in advance. The seeds should first be put into soil within a plastic bag. Put the bag containing the viola seeds in the fridge for two weeks. Then sow the seeds in the dark at 18 to 25 degrees centigrade; it should take about two to three weeks for viola to germinate.
