The happy faces of the viola and pansy are beaming in the greenhouse sunshine!
Although these guys can handle the cool nights they have been growing inside the protection of our greenhouses so please take care to harden them off. This means you want to get them used to being outside so they will acclimate appropriately. Take your pansies and violas inside at night for about a week. Keep an eye on the weather, they can take a light frost but if we get down below 30 they may get damaged. Cover them with a sheet or bring them indoors if the temps dip that low.
Place your pansies and violas in full to part sun and remove spent flowers at the base of the stem to prevent seed pods from forming.
Enjoy some spring color to lift your soul 🙂
