- Watering can
Plant the pansies in a flower pot or balcony planter, as soon as possible after you receive it. Choose a pot with holes in the bottom, so that water can drain properly. Cover the bottom with pot shards or a layer of clay pebbles. Add fresh potting soil to the pot and place the root balls of the pansies at the correct height. Fill it with potting soil and press firmly. After planting, water it generously and place the pot in full sun, or half shade.
