How to make violets bloom

Even if you don’t have a green thumb, your violets, whether in pots or in the ground, can flower profusely.

What are violets

Violets are perennial flowering plants that can grow both in pots and in the ground. Violets are very decorative and do not require great care , so much so that they can withstand even very harsh temperatures. However, they may not flower as we would like.

To overcome this problem, below, we show you a trick that promises great blooms for your plant.


How to make them flourish

The secret ingredient you will need is used constantly in all cuisines. These are eggs that, after having been used for your home preparations, you may still need. In fact, to make your violets bloom, you will need eggshells.

First of all, you will have to avoid throwing them away, pass them under running water and then let them dry in the sun, if possible. Alternatively, you can place them on a baking tray and put them in the oven for a quarter of an hour at 150 degrees. Once the egg shells are dry, you will need to crumble them. To do this, you can use your hands or the back of a spoon. The operation will have to be rough since the egg shells will have to be passed in the blender.

The shell powder thus obtained will be used for your violets. It will be an extremely beneficial compound because it has a high calcium content, which is fundamental for the development of plants.

Before putting it on your violas, however, you will need to do some maintenance. Specifically, you will need to cut away all dried flowers and leaves. This often happens, especially after the plant has flowered. Only in this way will violets be able to bloom again. If the dried flowers and leaves remain on the plant for too long, they could prevent the growth of new shoots. The same goes for dry leaves. Leave the leaves small and new so that they will sprout more quickly.

Before placing the eggshells in the soil, the latter will need to be disturbed a little. It can be done with the help of a spatula or, if it is a small vase, with kitchen scissors. It must be said, however, that the pots should be changed often.

With the help of a spoon, pour the eggshell powder obtained previously from above. It should cover the entire part of the soil near the roots of the plant. You will also be able to loosen the ground so that the dust penetrates to the bottom.

The next step is to give water to the plant. This operation should be repeated every evening, so as to guarantee the plant the calcium requirements it needs. After a few weeks, you will see your violet blooming like never before.
