Sweet violets always inspire memories of times gone by and now you can purchase your very own plants. Our collection of violets has been gradually built over a period of 40 years and is the result of the enthusiasm of three generations of the Groves family. Now numbering in excess of 100 varieties of Sweet Violet, Parma Violet and other Species our catalogue now holds National collection status and is one of the largest selections in the country.
