Colourful Pansies for your bedding plant displays this winter

Pansy Can Can

Pansy Can Can £9.99 for 100 plug plants + 60 free

With autumn coming to an end and with winter looming over your garden don’t lose your summer and autumn colour to the cold weather, look instead towards our wide collection of pansies to fill your garden with their colourful faces all winter!

These surprisingly hardy plants are great for filling gaps in your borders, trailing in hanging baskets or brightening up your patio. Our variety of Pansies can be purchased as either plug plants, super and jumbo ready plants or seeds. Our Pansies were a huge success with customers in July and August proving Pansy Can Can to be especially popular.

Feature writer for Jersey Plants Direct Christine Walkden recognizes the Pansies’ popularity by saying- “the Pansies are great value for money and the mix of colours’ in the Can Can is just great.”

Gardening expert Denis Shaw  identifies our Pansy Grande Fragrance as being both brilliantly strong in colour and scent by advising -  “The large colourful flowers will cheer up any border and you won’t need to get on your hands and knees to enjoy their scent as they are equally attractive in window boxes as in low borders.”

Our Pansy autumn bedding plants are nurtured until they are ready to be dispatched up until the end of October. On arrival they are ready to be grown on or planted straight out as you choose. At Jersey Plants Direct we aim to make planting as easy as possible, here are a few tips to enable your Pansies to withstand those winter months-
  • Pansies are hardy plants but you can help them along by making sure they are planted in an area where they will gain full sun or partial shade allowing them to be as healthy as possible during winter.
  • Plant Pansies in a rich, moist soil with good drainage. To help your pansies flourish and increase drainage make sure your soil is gritty and rich in organic compost.
  • Here at Jersey Plants Direct, we know that Pansies like most bedding plants, look better closer together, but please remember spacing your Pansies will in turn achieve healthy plants through good air circulation.
  • As it says above, Pansies thrive in moist soil- but be careful not to over-water your Pansies which will cause dramatic and even deadly results as the winter weather rolls in. Over-watering in winter doesn’t allow plants time to dry throughout the day and can cause root rot.
Pansy Cascadia

Pansy Cascadia (Trailing) £12.99 for 100 plants +60 free

Hanging baskets are an attractive alternative way to present your Pansies; we recommend our Pansy Cascadia with trailing habits that will create a flowing spectrum of colours in your garden. Along with hanging baskets, Pansies are perfect for bringing your patio and window ledges to life and can easily be planted in patio containers and window boxes.

Seeds can be purchased in our Pansy Can Can, Pansy Grande Fragrance and Pansy Galore varieties. But you had better be quick, seeds need to be sown before the end of the month. All our seeds are dispatched within 10 days of receipt order to help you plant them as quickly as possible this autumn. Planting seeds proves a little more challenging than planting our garden ready plants, but all seed orders come with simple instructions for planting perfect Pansies.

Enjoy your Autumn garden and make the most of these beautifully cheerful bedding plants.
