The humble Pansy gives a great display of colour. Pansy blooms are a beautiful selection of deep and striking tones and are an easy way to add colour to your garden.
These little flowers are surprisingly very hardy and will stand up to snow and frost.
Pansies are easy to plant and care for so are a perfect plant for children or beginner gardeners to grow.
Pansies like to be well watered and if you keep dead heading regularly the flowers will come back for months.
