These robust, free-flowering plants will flower in mild periods throughout winter and be at their best from early spring.
The wide range of colours will complement spring bulbs for a dazzling display. You can create wonderful winter and early spring containers by underplanting pansies with miniature early flowering daffodils.

How to Guide
Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a little more compost. Place in warmth 10-15C (50-60F), and keep moist. Higher temperatures may inhibit germination.
Potting on/Thining Out
Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.
Hardening Off/Planting Out
Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out. Allow 15cm (6in) between plants.
