About Viola

Viola are annuals, biennials, deciduous or evergreen perennials that display a striking and distinctive flower shape made up of a delicate 5-petalled cluster, mounted by a plethora of ovate, bubbling foliage and thin, slender stems. Viola are best suited to flower beds and borders within courtyard, coastal, cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Viola grow to an approximate height and spread of 50cm (20”).

How to plant Viola

Viola are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of sand, clay and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. Amend the planting area with plenty of organic matter and mix in thoroughly to the existing soil. Viola prefer full sun in a sheltered position away from intense midday heat, although they will tolerate areas of part shade.

How to care for Viola

Viola should be watered regularly but you should allow the soil to dry between applications. To promote further blooming you may need to remove or deadhead spent flowers. To neaten overgrown and congested plants you may wish to cut back Viola so that they are 8-10cm (3-4”) above the soil level. During the summer, it is recommended to mulch Viola to keep the soil moist and cool.

How to propagate Viola

It is possible to propagate Viola by seed sown in late winter or spring. Alternatively, you can propagate by softwood cuttings in spring.
