HesterB's Viola 'Johnny Jump-Up' x 25 Planting Out
I always have these little violas in my vege gardens.
When I first learnt about cottage gardening I loved the idea of these little flowers being grown by generations of gardeners and decided to carry on the tradition.
They are good for attracting bees and other beneficial insects and they look pretty.
I’ve always grown flowers alongside vegetable plants.
Johnny Jump-Ups have the sweetest little flowers with glowing colours and tiny pansy ‘whiskers’
They self sow readily but are not invasive.
