Odorata and Parma 'Marie Louise'

bellegallica(9)May 27, 2006

I've never grown violets before, but want to give them a try.

I ordered odorata and Parma 'Marie Louise'. They've arrived. Now what do I do with them?

My impulse is to plant the 'odorata' under a tree in the backyard and let it spread wherever it wants.

But what about 'Marie Louise'?

Thanks for any advice!

Hi !

That's definitively a good idea to give violets a try ;o)
About odorata under a tree: better not a conifer and pay attention there's enough sun :-) During spring time, the more they'll have sun, the more they'll make blooms.
About Marie-Louise: a pot :-))
Anyway, don't put them together.
Really hope you will sucess, but don't worry too much, there's no reason why you shouldn't, odorata is so easy :-)

All the best :-)

How are your violas? Try an eco-lawn - must remark - they are long-lived and adaptable. Cymbidiums love the eco-lawn also.
