Spring and summer blooms
For the spring bloom, the seeds are sown outdoors in August / September or the young plants are preferred in a cool room in the winter months. From April to June the pansies bloom tirelessly. The cheerful, colorful flowers can be with us until August if you consistently remove what has withered and thus stimulate further branching and flower formation.
