Violet 's survival guide

Gum chewer extraordinaire

Violet is our favourite no-nonsense amigo who is always looking for competition. Whether it’s martial arts or gymnastics, Violet will never fail to boast about her many accomplishments, the most recent being her acquisition of a Golden Ticket. Though her personality is a bit abrasive, she will quickly step in line the moment you mention blueberry pie. Needless to say, she’s off the gum.

How to care for Violet

Heliotrope plants are fragrant and colourful plants that are simply a delight to have around any garden. The deep purple blooms last for quite a while. Kept possibly as a perennial in moderate climates, this plant is a temperate one that is grown typically as an annual due to its inability to survive any frost. Fortunately they are very drought and heat tolerant and will do well in dry but hot climates. This small shrub can grow from 1 to 4 feet high and prefers to be grown out in a sunny spot for the best possible results. If you keep your heliotrope potted, be sure to fertilize once a month in spring and summer. And be careful with pets, as the Heliotrope is known to be highly toxic.
