Ed's Special Advice

Plants will grow and flower best in partial sun and shade. Keep dead flowers picked, so they do not go to seed and stop blooming. Plants prefer rich soil kept moderately moist Pansies are well suited to container planting. Combines well with Spring flowering bulbs as well as shade tolerant plants.
