When can you plant pansies?


If you want to have blooming pansies in the garden in spring, you should plant them in autumn and then protect them from frost.

Pansies are the classic in the spring garden and many hobby gardeners ask themselves the question: When you can Plant pansies? When is the optimal time?

Plant in autumn - but protect from frost
If you want to have pansies in the garden in spring, you should set them early in the autumn. This allows the pansies to grow in sufficiently. This early planting also ensures that the pansies can no longer be pushed up out of the earth so quickly in the winter frost because they have already had enough time to grow. If you want to protect the little plants additionally, cover them with spruce twigs or firs to achieve optimal frost protection.

Plant pansies in boxes and bowls
If the pansies are to bloom in boxes or bowls in the following spring, then planting in spring is sufficient. Until around the beginning of March, the right time for planting the pansies in boxes and other planters and the selection in gardening companies is particularly large at this time, so that the colors in the spring can still be very intense.
