    Greetings from sunny Shoreham-by-Sea!

    For some reason I bought some offer viola maxi-plugs, but think now that they're not likely to do anything at this time of year, are they?

      Hi,

      Well we bought some similar in September and they are in flower now, though still smallish plants.

      As long as the weather is mild enough think they should give a welcoming display ... if not they will probably just sit there until it gets warmer in spring...

        Hi winter is often a quiet time in the garden and offers very little in the way of colour. Brighten up your garden with Viola winter Plants throughout the gloomy Winter months!
        abundance of dainty flowers from Autumn right through to Spring and are perfect for your beds, borders, containers and hanging baskets! So yours could be winter violas plug plants if so they grow now

          Yes they're meant to be planted now for winter and spring so don't worry.

              When the garden centres and online are selling bedding plants now, it's time to plant them now.:smile:
