Grow Pansy in a Pot
Pansy is a hardy annual known for its face like blooms. Pansy blooms in all four season – spring, summer, fall and winter with different shades of yellow, pink, red, blue and violet. Sometimes grown as biennials pansy doesn’t get much tall restricting itself to 6-8 inches only. So these are ideal for ground covers and container gardening.
Pansy is propagating from seeds. Seeds can be sown late winter (Dec-Jan) or in summer (Apr-June). Low temperature favors quick germination. Seeds germinate in about 2 weeks.Know best months to start different flower plants in India
As Pansy is small height plant so small sized container / pot (10 inches) can be used. The container should have 3-4 drainage holes to ensure drainage of water out of it to avoid water logging and root rot.
