How to grow Violas

-Violas like full sun, but not the heat it brings. This isn’t a problem in cool spring temperatures, but when planting in the summer, make sure they get some shade during the hottest part of the afternoon.

-Water regularly, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings. They can tolerate some drought but will bloom best with regular watering.

- To encourage flowering, you should deadhead the spent blooms regularly

-Pansies and the other violas are best grown in humusy, moist soil, such as a peat-based potting mix, or garden soil heavily amended with organic material. Violas like a slightly acidic soil; peat moss as a soil additive will help slightly acidify garden soil.
