When to start Sorbet Violas to bloom for Mother's day.

lindarenee(a5 Ohio)February 16, 2011

I love the Sorbet Violas and thought of starting some as a fund raiser for a group of client's I work with. We would like to have them ready and blooming for mother's day. Is it too late to get started? I haven't purchased seeds yet. I see they are available on Ebay. I liked "Ocean Breeze", "Black Duet" and "Coconut Swirls". Are they very difficult?

I'm considering starting them at home and moving them to work when they look sturdy enough for the clients to handle.

Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

I haven't grown these before, but what I've read says they bloom anywhere from 8 to 10 weeks after sowing. I would think you'd have enough time if you start soon. Good luck!
