To grow a compact sprouts, seeds Anyutka "sparsely sown in rows in nurseries or on a well-crafted ridge; shoots appear after 6-14 days. 2-3 weeks after seedling pansy diving, and in late August, transplant to a permanent place (where you want to see the violets blooming the following year) at a distance of 20-25 cm between plants. Sowing pansies in the summer is made so that the plants had well developed before the onset of autumn frosts, but not bloom. To obtain flowering plants in one year viola seeds sown seedlings, in February. Sowing is carried out in a room or greenhouse, preparing boxes or pots filled with loose, moist, fertile soil.

Seedlings planted in a shady spot close to each other at a depth of no more than 0.5 cm after planting the cuttings watered and sprayed with water. Approximately 3-4 weeks for the cuttings develop roots of violets. With early propagation by cuttings pansies grown from cuttings, bloom in summer or early fall, while the later years of propagation by cuttings - in the spring of next year. Reproduction of violets from cuttings rejuvenates the plant, does not allow the bushes to grow strongly at the expense of flowering. From one well-developed plants in one go you can get about 10 cuttings, and during the summer - 30-45 pieces. Pansies are widely used for floral arrangements. They are planted as a curb plants, carefully tended, planted in the balcony boxes, street vases, flower beds teams.
