First Pansies. Ever.

I don't know why, but I have never had pansies at Garden on Sherlock Street before Saturday.
We were running errands Saturday morning and there were pansies for sale at one of our favorite stores. 


I brought a pack home.  They have a place by the front door.

  1. Shocking news! I'm glad you remedied that gap in your horticultural experience. They look cheery.

  2. I love pansies and will plant them in the fall and sometimes we'll have blooms all winter long. Two pots of fall pansies did survive and now are blooming as much as the spring ones. Did you know they were edible?

  3. Gardener, I must confess that I, too, have never grown pansies... that I ever remember. ;-) I suppose I should also remedy the situation! lol.

  5. I planted pansies from seed and I didn't think they were ever going to come up but they did and they R very sturdy and have long stems so that U can float them in a bowl. Nice color you have chosen.

  6. Like everybody else I love Pansies. Almost bought some last year but couldn't figure out where I would put them. Makes me want them again this year. Very pretty in your pots.

  7. They look very pretty! I have them in window boxes and they are just blooming like crazy now.

  8. You might become addicted as they are fast cheerful fillers while waiting on other plants to grow and bloom. Plenty of sunshine and some fertilizer from time to time and that container will be over flowering :)

  10. Pansies were my favorite flower as a child. I'm waiting for our garden centers to get them in so I can have my annual pot next to my front door.

  12. Hi Sherlock,
    I always think pansies look like little smiling faces.

  13. Funny your just starting with pansies. Around here they are giving them away, we plant them in the fall. Soon as it hits 90 degrees they won't be very happy.

  14. Pansies are a nice source of early spring color, and it's a bonus if they live through the whole season. Mine usually do, but did not last year.
