The musings of a chef-caterer
turned estate gardener,
digging, pruning and
cultivating my way through a year in the garden
The pansy is always being offered on sale early spring and late fall here in Iowa, pretending that we can keep them alive. We are now zone 5a and they don't like hard frost or freezing and people still buy them anyway.
Promises of spring! Love that hellebore especially!
Your pansies are looking good. Tell me, do you get a problem called leaf spot on any of them at all? Over here most pansies are imported from Holland, and like most plants from there, the pansies carry fungal disease.
