Viola - Bedding Supreme Mix
This is a designer blend of small flowered hybrid quality Violas, offering endless colour through Spring or Summer in beds, borders or containers.
Sow February to March or June to September on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a constant temperature of between 15-20C. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 14 to 21 days. Take care not to provide too high a temperature, as this can prevent germination. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for 1 to 15 days before planting out after all risk of frost. For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. Overwinter September sowings in a cold frame then plant out the following spring.
