Plant of the Week: Pansy/viola

Plant of the Week: Pansy/viola

They may be small – but winter pansies are big on impact. They're invaluable for brightening up patios right through winter and well into spring. They make a cheery foil for narcissi and crocuses, and are usually still going strong when the first tulips arrive.

Pansies carry larger, but fewer flowers up to 7.5cm across, while violas are reliably smothered in little 2.5cm blooms. There are hundreds of different colour combinations for both: look out for prettily-whiskered 'Cats' pansies and the delicious pastel colours of the prolific 'Sorbet' family of violas. Whatever you choose, there's nothing to beat them for sheer good value at this time of year.


Pot on tomato seedlings when they develop their true leaves. These are the second pair of leaves to grow above the oval seed leaves. Stand them in a light place to keep them upright and sturdy.
