Not violas, not African violets, but sweet smelling old fashioned violets, purple and white, the ones that I grew up with in West Virginia. Does anyone know where to purchase seeds or plants? I know that they will thrive in Washington, but we moved and I need to start a new patch.

I think I know what your talking about, I have some that spread all over the beds every spring that I call wild. I got my start from my MIL years ago an now I find them to be a nuisance somewhat. I remember her asking me: You sure you want this started in your yard? I'll get rid of the ones that grow "out of bounds" an leave the rest.

I too grew up with the wild violets that grew behind my grandmothers little church in the Charleston, WV area. Would go up there and make bracelets out of those and the clover.
I have the purple and white (that I call the confederate violet) that grow here in SC? Send me a PM if you want a few of them. They do spread!!

It's freezing here and try as I might I just can't stay outside too long to get beds ready. Snow tomorrow they say. My compost is doing nothing...i have added worms. Anybody try that compost booster? Does it work?
