A punchy, vibrant blue to brighten the cooler, darker months, ‘Frizzle Sizzle Blue’ beams with quirky, face-like, double blue ruffled petals speckled with a golden eye. A compact evergreen perennial, but most commonly grown as a show-stopping annual, this sweetly scented viola will be happy in baskets, borders, containers and window boxes over the winter. The edible flowers can be added to salads as a decorative garnish.

  • Garden care:
    Plant out in compost or well-drained, humus-rich soil that is not frozen or waterlogged. Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead the spent blooms to prolong flowering.

  • Sowing instructions:
    Late winter, spring and autumn sowings can be done in a cold frame, into trays of good seed compost and gradually hardened off before planting out. Alternatively sow directly into a well-prepared seed bed in late spring to early summer, or in autumn. Gently thin the seedlings out to 15cm apart when they are large enough to handle.

  • Sow: February to May or August to September (under glass), or April to July or September to October (direct)
