When I started growing and showing I had little idea of how the Florist pansy etc differed from the bog standard garden centre plug or pot.
Thankfully a Scottish grower became my mentor, and kindly forwarded lots of different photographs to illustrate what each looked like.
The photos do not do justice as they were all taken very late in the season and not by myself, when it would be nearly winter. In the spring and early summer they would be more fresh.
The photos in order show a typical Fancy Pansy, an exhibition viola, and the third a show pansy.
Hope you like them
