African Violets

Love these beauties, but can’t seem to grow them?  Let’s change that … with knowledge and a few tips for success, you will enjoy these flowering plants and find that they are very low-maintenance.

Additional Information

African Violets are such a beautiful, easy-to-grow, flowering plant for your home. Most varieties will re-bloom continually for years, and come in many colors. Violets require little space and prefer to be in a small pot, and only need a small amount of care. These plants are also easy to propagate and grow additional plants. With a little knowledge and some tips & tricks, you can be a successful African Violet grower!

Availability: Most evenings, weekends (excluding mid-March thru June.) Prefer to travel maximum of 30 minutes one-way from my home in Lee's Summit.
