    6inchs apart if you want them to grow to touch each other

    If we want them to be a instant thrill we plant them 1 on top of another that gives the best look in a short period of time, But Normally you should plant 5" to 6" apart

    Here is a quote from this site.

    "Plant them anywhere from six to ten inches apart; close spacing helps the bed look fuller, but wider spacing aids in good circulation and overall plant health."

    This year I'll be putting down Merit on all my Pansy installations. Last year, the aphids did a lot of damage to pansies in the DFW area.
