A stunning mixture of large ruffled flowered pansies in a dazzling wild berry blend of purple picotees and rose shades. Bushy compact plants flower over a long period brightening autumn, spring or summer containers. Spring sowings will give flowers during early summer, whilst summer and autumn sowings will bloom the following winter or spring.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The crystallised petals are great decorations for cakes and cookies, or they can be added straight to green salads for an injection of colour. For more details about edible flowers click here.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 23cm (9in) apart, or plant into baskets and containers.
For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun or part shade.
Over winter September sowings in a cold frame then plant out the following spring.
