Though largely forgotten in modern herbalism, the use of Violet extends back hundreds of years, if not longer. Such preeminent healers as Hippocrates and Nicolas Culpeper utilized the moist, cool properties of this botanical in their humoral systems of medicine, finding applications for imbalances of the skin and eyes. Over the centuries, some have also used Violet for problems of impaired digestion such as constipation.

GROWING NOTES
Violet will grow to a height of approximately 15” and will begin to show delicate purple and yellow flowers approximately 2 months after germinating.

 

Violet is adaptable to varying light conditions; sunny to mostly shady. Prefers a rich soil. Water moderately.

MAINTAINING
Violet is best started in fall to provide the necessary stratification for germination in the spring. If starting in spring, place seeds into plastic bag with small amount of moistened vermiculite and refrigerate for 4-6 weeks, checking regularly to make sure contents remain moist. If seed start to germinate, transplant immediately.

 

After stratification, seeds can be sown in flats. Cover with a thin layer of soil, approximately ¼” and keep moist. Seeds should begin to germinate within 21-35 days. Transplant outdoors in mid to late spring once last possibly of frost has passed.
