Care & Harvest

Viola

🌱Germination: Violas need darkness to germinate properly. DO NOT disturb rockwool to check on germination progress.

 

đź’ˇTemperature: Prefers cooler temperatures (65-70F).

 

✂️ Pruning: Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod. Once flowers start to fade, remove them by pinching the stem below the base of the flower head. This helps the plant refocus its energy on producing the next wave of blooms!

 

🔎 Plant Health: Aphids are a common pest on flowers and fruiting plants, but you can use our prevention and treatment tricks to keep pests at bay!

 

🌻 Harvest: Harvest by cutting flowers at the stem when they are fully open.

Quick Facts

Native to Europe, people have cultivated Violas for thousands of years. Historically, people commonly used Violas to make medicinal treatments, wine, and even perfumes. Today, violas are a favorite edible garnish to chefs and home cooks alike. Fun fact: Violas were the first flower associated with Valentine’s Day!

Violas are naturally compact plants with small flowers. Their frilly, colorful petals display splashes of purple, white, and yellow. Violas have a subtle, sweet flavor and a delicate scent, making them a perfect and unique edible garnish. They are a source of vitamins A and C, and contain anthocyanins.

Violas add a beautiful pop of color to your Gardyn. Try these charming flowers as an edible garnish for any dish! Enjoy them sprinkled over fruit, salads, soups, or even desserts. Violas can also add edible beauty to any appetizer or main course, and they create a stunning presentation when pressed into soft cheeses or icing on cakes and cookies.
