Viola tricolor
FLOWER-HEARTSEASE-JOHNNY JUMP UP is a member of the viola family, closely related to pansies and violets. It has acquired an intriguing list of names over its long history, names that reflect its diverse characteristics. Viola tricolor is a cheery little annual guaranteed to brighten up the day. An old-fashioned ‘miniature pansy’ with delicate tricolor faces of purple, yellow & cream. They are delightful in the front of borders, along paths or in baskets and containers. Grows well in sun or partial shade, plant in spring.

Sow in a seedbed directly, just cover the seed and keep moist at 15-20°C. Thin (prick out) to further pots or trays or hanging baskets when seedlings have developed 2-4 leaves.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
