Pansies like cool weather and not a lot of sun. You will see them at garden centers at this time of year as well as the early spring.

To plant pansies, dig  holes that are big enough to cover the roots. Remove the pansy from its container and place in the hole. Cover the roots with the dirt and pat it down. Water the pansy.

Pansies are so colorful and their little faces are cheery. Pansies are in the same family as violas and violets.
