Growing Violas





I like to grow violas, or johnny jump ups as the third picture shows, a fun thing to do.  The look just like Pansies, but they have very small blooms.  They grow easily from seed and self seed from year to year. It is easy to transplant the small starts to different spots. I just moved some into pots and put them in my greenhouse. They will grow well inside the greenhouse with fertilizer and water...I like to use a water soluble fertilizer. In about a month I will put beautifully growing pots of Violas beside the front door. And...by the way, the blooms are edible...I put them in salads.
