Pansy Perfection

Do you love pansies as much as I do?
I must buy some this week!
Enjoy your Sunday.

I never thought pansies would grow inside like that. Will they really, or do you think the pots were brought inside just for the photo shoot? I'd love to have a pot inside on the kitchen table.

Mama Pea -- I googled it. It seems you can grow them indoors.
Containers
Pansies will grow in any container that holds soil and allows water to drain. You may want to grow your pansies in small terra cotta pots and group them together on a table. You can also plant pansies in a hanging basket placed near a window. Nontraditional containers, like galvanized buckets, decorative bowls or fish bowls, can add a creative flair to your pansy display. To use a nontraditional container, first plant your pansies in a pot with drainage holes. Place the pot into your container and bury it in soil. This helps prevent overly wet soil in the pot.

How nice of you to provide that information for me, Rosemary. Thank you so much. I always have pansies outside in the summer, and you may be sure this fall I will pot some up to bring inside.
