How to grow Pansy from seeds? Hello plant lovers, welcome to another topic about pansies with me, today in this topic we are going to talk about how to grow Pansy from seeds.

Planting Seeds

Always use fresh and good quality seeds, then you need to take a medium size pot and be sure it has good drainage holes at the bottom.

Fill the pot with the potting mix, you can use whatever you want but be sure it has good quality, my own opinion is to use 70% of Vermi Compost and 30% of fine sand.

The best time to plant Pansy seeds is during the fall or after the frost in late winter.

After you put the soil in the pot or container, gently press the soil with your hand and then put some water to make it moisty.

Pure the seeds in your hand and then sprinkle seeds on the potting mix surface after that cover them with thin layer of same potting mix, be careful not to burry them too deep as it will decrease the germination rate.

Again you need to gently press the potting mix with your hand then slowly pure some water but careful not to disturb the seeds.

After Care

For first 10-12 days keep the pot in partial shade because direct sunlight can harm the newly germinated seedlings.

Here is an important thing you need to know and that is to keep the soil moisty and not over water, during the germination time.

After all this you shall witness your seedlings have 3 to 4 true leaves, plant them in their permanent location.

With help of a trowel or any gardening tool you have takeout some seedlings from the pot with their root ball intact.

You can plant every seedling in separate pots or you can keep them together in one big pot.

Planting in big pot

Pansies thrive in soil that is well-drained and rich in nutrients, it is important to add some organic materials like compost, peat moss or animal manure to improve the soil.

Dig the soil couple inches the put the seedling you carved out from before and place it in the hole, then gently press the soil around it to make it fit and Keep the seedlings about 6 to 8 inches apart in all directions.

Do this until all your seedlings are planted.

After you planted all of them be sure to water them to avoid transplant shock and to regain lost moisture.

For the next 2-3 days keep the pot(s) in partial shade so that the seedlings can recover from transplant shock and after that put it in the full sunlight for 5 or 6 hours, but be careful too much sunlight can burn the plant and kill it and too much shade can reduce the number of flowers that bloom and the size of your pansies.
