@talentryto- I have planted English violets, and they definitely do well when the soil has been replenished with organic plant material. If you have a compost pile of leaves, sticks, grass shavings, and last year's plants, this makes an ideal organic mixture for your garden soil. All you have to do is spread it on top of the soil, and use a garden tiller to mix it in. This will put back vital nutrients into the soil that will help new plants like English violets thrive each growing season.
If you didn't start a compost pile last year, you can purchase organic garden mixture at your local home and garden store. Just remember to set aside some organic materials this year so you can begin making your own natural fertilizer.
