This week I thought I would show pictures of the Historic Florist pansies I grew from seed. The top photo is of my pansy bed; the others show the diversity of blooms and colors of antique pansies. The flowers are fragrant and almost all of the blooms have a “face”. More information is available in my first blog on this WordPress site, which describes the origin of pansies in England during the 1830s.
This week I am moving to Montana from Oregon, so this blog is one day late and quite brief. I will manage a new organic nursery and greenhouse—a new division of Westland Seed, Inc., Ronan, Montana.
