Viola Heartsease, also known as viola tricolour and wild pansy, are small pansy-like, edible flowers with a sweet, mild, lettuce-like flavour. They have a long flowering period, from March right through to October, and will happily self-seed. Tricolour; violet, yellow and white.  Viola are very easy to raise from seed.

Sowing Instructions

Sow: your viola seeds direct, where they are to flower, between March and May or August to September, in shallow drills.  Choose a sunny or partially shaded site. 

Aftercare: Thin to 15cm apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.

Harvest: flowers, when they have just opened, as required.

Usage

Commonly crystalised and used as gorgeous edible cake decorations.  (Use a brush to paint on a little egg white then sprinkle gently with caster sugar, dry for a couple of hours and use within a week.) Petals can also be used to add interest to green salads or frozen in ice cube trays for dunking in summer drinks.
