  • Hardiness: Fully hardy

Stunning golden yellow flowers with each petal adorned with delicate black veining, ‘Tiger Eyes’ is a bushy perennial, often grown as an annual and can be used in either summer or winter bedding displays. Violas are perfectly suited this, they’re cool-season bloomers, sometimes remaining in flower throughout the winter.

Our seedlings are grown individually in cell trays, each plant measures about 4 - 6cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They are ideal for keen gardeners who have a greenhouse where the plants can be grown on until they are ready for planting out in the garden.

Please note: We grow these especially for you, so we do request that full payment is made when you place your order. See above for despatch dates. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

Garden care:
Keep well watered, and feed with a good, high potash fertiliser (such as Tomorite) on a regular basis. Pinching off the spent flowers will encourage more to form.

  • Sowing instructions:
    Sow seed into trays from late winter to early spring or in late summer. Germination should occur within 10 to 21 days (temperatures above 20°C can inhibit germination). Cover seeds completely, Violas prefer darkness to germinate and keep the growing media moist. Pot on seedlings individually and grow on in a cooler place. Plant out when roots have filled the pots or modules and young plants have been hardened off for frost resilience.

  • Sow: March to May or August to September
