5 May : Viola

There is a secret to growing violas - place the pot where the early morning or late afternoon sun shines through the petals. The petals lose their dark velvety colour and glow. I saw this once over twenty years ago, a huge lead urn filled with purple viola in a patch of sunlight, and I have never forgotten it.
