Violets, Pansies, and Violas are all related. Generally, violets are grown from seeds; however, in some cases, you can purchase the plants (or dig them up from other areas and transplant). Violets can be directly seeded in the garden or started indoors. In order to get spring blooms, you should start them indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in your area. Otherwise, sow them directly in the garden early in the season, about 1/8" deep in an area with full to partial sun. Water thoroughly and be patient, as these plants are sometimes slow to germinate. Transplants can be put in the garden after the last frost date for your area. Space them 6" apart.
