If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily.

Violets are a perennial in zones 3-9 in the northern hemisphere.
If starting from seed, it is best to start violets in the fall or early winter for there to be enough time to establish themselves in the cold soil. The plant will grow sets of heart-shaped, scalloped leaves and will typically have five solid petals that can come in various colors.
The violet's petals will begin to bloom in late winter to early spring, and in regions, with cooler weather, they could continue to blossom into the summer. The bloom color can range from whites, yellows, and oranges to the darker blue and violet ranges. Some violets species can have a two-tone bloom color, which is typically white to blue or white to violet.
These plants can grow up to 15 inches tall at the height of their maturity, and they prefer soils that are well-draining and rich with nutrients.
Violets are adaptable and can thrive well in shaded and partially sunny areas.
They do not require a lot of extra care and are relatively self-sufficient, other than periodic watering. These plants can be planted in flower beds, containers, or hanging pots. While typically seen as an outside flower, they can grow efficiently indoors anywhere there is a bit of sunlight. Violets are usually grown for use in decorative landscaping or an easy ground cover for woodland gardens.
