Win­ter Pan­sies

My Weekly - - Tips -

Now is the time to plant up tubs and bas­kets with win­ter pan­sies. Once home, take off all flow­er­ing heads. It sounds dras­tic but it makes the plants put all their en­ergy into grow­ing big­ger. Do the same twice more. Once es­tab­lished and the blooms fade, pinch them out too to stop them us­ing en­ergy on seed. You will find they flower much longer. Pat Lowe, Bas­ingstoke
