Tips to Grow and Care for Pansy flowers

Pansy flowers have heart-shaped, overlaying petals found in brilliant shades or bi-colors which sometimes look like a living butterfly.

Pansies may be planted at any time of year, but the best time is in the early spring.

Pansies like indirect or full light, but require temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit to grow. The optimal location for planting is one that receives early morning sunlight but avoids the afternoon heat.

Ideally, pansies bloom in Full sun to partial shade. However, they'll last longer and look better if planted in partial shade.

Pansies thrive in loose, well-drained soil which has a slightly acidic pH range 6.0 to 6.2.

When you regular water pansies you can expect them to survive a bit longer than usual but they will not last for the whole season.

The presence of slugs, particularly in areas with partial shade, is a problem during rainy seasons. Spread out the plants or use a slug trap to keep the soil from becoming too wet.

Pansies benefit from fertilizer, just like any other long-blooming annual. However, excess will just cause them to become weak.
