Pansies & Violas ... Winter sow now, or sow in spring?
A newbie WS'er question about pansies and violas...
Do most people have best success winter sowing these in January or February, and if I WS them now, would they bloom in the spring? Or have you all had better success with spring sowing them outdoors in jugs for bloom in the fall? I noticed that pansies are listed on the FAQ pages as a candidate for spring sowing, but that Viola tricolor (pansy) is listed on the Hardy Annuals for WS FAQ page...
The seeds I have are:
Pansy Trimardeau Mix
Viola 'Helen Mount'
Thanks in advance!
