The "Dame's Violet" is one of the indispensable cottage garden flowers. Very fragrant lilac mauve stock-like flowers on tall branching stems, which are produced throughout spring and early summer. Superb perfumed cut flowers from seed the first year.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
