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. Viola tricolor, is a biennial pansy only growing approximately 6 inches tall. 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.
