Violets do not fear the harsh winter temperatures; on the contrary, it is much easier for them to die during the summer season. However, try to place your pots in a fairly sunny area during the winter so that they can get the most benefit from the sun’s rays, even in the cold.
Violets prefer fertile, well-drained soil. The best thing is to use very large pots that can accommodate a good amount of seed plants to obtain a beautiful pot of violets on your terrace or garden. The violets should be planted very close to one another (although at a distance of about 8cm between each one). You must take special care to avoid stagnating the water, which is very harmful to the plant and can cause problems during winter frosts.
