Viola - Chicky Chicks

This variety is very cute but not fluffy! It produces masses of charming little flowers with cheery contrasting faces are produces on neat, compact plants over a long period. Suitable for edging borders and beds, they are just stunning in tubs and baskets. Can be treated as a hardy biennial or a half-hardy annual.

Sow indoors, from March to September. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant to other trays, 5cm apart, when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out to flowering positions in well-drained soil, from May to October, allowing 15cm between plants. Flowers from June to October. Early sowings will flower the same year. Those from July onwards will flower the following spring.
