Q&A – Do Minis Require the Same Care As Standards


Janice H. asks Annie:

Q  I have great difficulty in growing miniature violets.  There are so many that I would like to grow, but shy away from buying them as they seem to die on me so easily.  What is the secret to growing them?  In the past I’ve treated them the same as my standards.


A  I sure wish I could answer this, but – as you probably already know, minis and I don’t always speak the same language.  What I’ve been told from friends who do grow them well, is that they really need to be repotted regularly on a schedule, every 3-4 months. 

I hope this helps,
Annie :-)
