Pansy (Viola Wittrockiana Swiss Giant Velvet Mix) - No garden is complete without this pansy velvet mix. Easily grown from Pansy seeds, this Swiss giant Pansy reaches 3 inches across and features a beautiful velvety mix of flowers. The Viola Swiss giant is one of the largest Pansy flowers available. Pansy plants are great performers in the garden, in tubs on the patio or for cut flower bouquets, and they will flower the first year.

Sow Pansy seeds indoors about 6 - 8 weeks prior to being able to plant outside. Sow the flower seed into trays or pots using a quality starter mix and cover lightly with peat moss. Shade the trays or pots as darkness aids germination. Keep Pansy flower seeds moist. As soon as the giant Pansy seedlings emerge, move them to a cool, bright area and continue to keep them moist. Harden off the Pansy plants prior to planting out, and use a liquid, balanced fertilizer. For fall blooms, set out Pansy plants as early as possible so they will be well rooted when soil temperatures fall, preferably 3 - 4 weeks before the first harsh frosts. For spring blooms, begin setting out Pansy plants up to a month before your last frost is expected. Twelve weeks are needed from seeding to bloom.
