THE NEW WEBSITE FOR THE NATIONAL VIOLA PANSY SOCIETY – PLANTING OUT SIMPLIFIED


As the last post explained this is the easiest method that I have found to plant out trays of seedlings.

At this time I have little knowledge of how they will develop so instead of potting up each one in a separate pot, I run a cake slice round the inside of the rim of the seed tray and once this is done I then slide the whole of the tray into a pre-formed planting hollow , enriched with bone meal pellets.

If I decide later to keep any worthwhile plants for exhibition, then I just remove it with care, and pot up leaving the remainder until I decide they are not worth keeping, when they are removed to the compost heap.

I used this method to select in 2013, and grow on the chosen plant ,which won the best Fancy Pansy in Show award at last year’ 2014 National annual show.

This year I am growing on one , which I feel is even better ,from a selection made in 2014. I have six good potted plants made from cuttings plus some younger cuttings in root trainers.
