How to keep your pansies healthy year round
To keep pansies healthy you have to regularly be taking off dead and dying flowers. When you take the dead flowers off you can leave the stems or you can take them off at the plant base if you want them to look better. The traditional annuals don't like a lot of direct sun but the johnny jump ups can take more varied light situations. As for color, mixing up the color year to year is more interesting. They work really well in hanging baskets also. They go really well with bulbs and provide a lot of texture. Pansies are great for early spring color. Put a tray down and you have great color to start the spring.
