Pansies are typically grown as annuals, sown 8-12 weeks before the average last frost for spring/early summer bloom, or in mid-summer for a fall planting. They will overwinter in most climates (USDA Zone 4 or warmer) and bloom in winter in mild climates and again the following spring in mild or cold climates. For best results, consult growing guides for your area.
*Seeds sprout better after a stratification treatment*. Your refrigerator can provide the cool, dark, conditions they need. Place the pansy seeds on a moistened paper towel and gently fold the paper towel to cover the seeds. Enclose in a plastic re-sealable bag, and refrigerate for 14 to 20 days. Check daily to ensure that the towel is evenly moist (like a wrung out sponge), gently mist with a spray bottle when needed. Plant the seeds in seedling pots and barely cover the seeds with a layer of with a light seeding mix. Place in a room that stays 65 degrees Fahrenheit to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and keep in the dark (a black plastic bag can be placed over the pots). The plastic can be removed when seeds begin to sprout, generally within two weeks. Transplant as you normally would.
