Why your pansies aren't blooming?

You can also sow them in pots or seed trays kept on windowsills or other sunny spots. When the weather cools down again, move them back outside.

If you want to grow pansies from seed, start with a packet of pansy seeds. They should be sown outdoors about 3 weeks before the last frost date.

How do I get my pansies to bloom?

The best way is to give the summer flowers some light and warmth. You can use a grow tent or warm windowsill with lights on it. Or you could put your pots of pansy seeds into a heated propagator (a small box that heats up).

This will help them start growing faster. When they are ready, you can take them outside again.

You can also try adding fertilizer to the soil. The most common one is fish emulsion. It contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. But if you have no access to fertilizers, you can make your own using composted manure.

It depends on how much light and heat you provide. In general, outdoor pansies should be able to create beautiful blooms within 3-6 weeks.

How do I keep my pansies from getting mildew?

Mildew is caused by too much moisture.
