*NEW TO NZ* Viola Gem Antique Pink & Apricot Seedling Pack

Sale price$35.00
Viola Gem Antique Pack:

Viola cornuta

Viola Gem Antique seedlings, grown in Marlborough by Gray Floral, shipping NZ wide.Gorgeous in pots, these beauties will flower all winter long and brighten up the quiet winter garden. 

When I first saw the Viola Gem Antique Pink & Viola Gem Antique Apricot in the Floret guide to Pansies & Violas I knew I had to get my hands on them. This is the first sowing we have done and so do not yet have our own imagery for them - and as far as I can tell they've not been grown here in NZ before, so this is your chance to trial them with us! 

Each pack includes 6 seedlings of each Pink & Apricot.

While not your typical cut flower, we've found you can achieve pickable stem length when you grow in part shade, or under taller growing plants, and plant nice and close together - 10-15cm. Pop them in under your sweet peas or between your roses! Pansies are cold hardy, and the stems will lengthen as the season goes on if you keep harvesting. 

Pack of 12 Viola Plants, 6 each of Apricot & Pink

Standard NZ shipping included. If you are rural, please select the rural option at checkout to avoid delays in processing your order

NOTES ON GROWING

Height: 15cm

Spacing: 10-20cm 

Harvest: When the flowers start to open

Vase life: 5-7 days

All our seedlings are grown in a custom cut flower mix which contains Trichoderma to assist in healthy root development and resistance to root pathogens. To give your seedlings the best start in your garden we recommend soaking them in a weak seaweed feed (or one of our "Seedling Shots") before planting. 

We are proud to be partnering with Sustaina Grow to package our seedlings in a wool wrap that maintains moisture and protects the seedlings in transit. On arrival, take your plants out of the box and give them a good drink of water - you can leave them wrapped in the wool to do this! When you're ready to plant or pot on you can unwrap the seedlings, but they will happily spend a couple of days in their wool blanket before planting.

This wool liner makes a wonderful mulch mat that can be used with your seedlings or around any plant in your garden. Everything apart from labels (which we hope you'll use in the garden and time and time again) and stickers are compostable, in an effort to keep our shipping sustainable for the environment.
