Ready to spill and thrill from containers and hanging baskets, the trailing stems are inundated with blooms for months on end. The cerise pink petals have a constellation of mesmerising white stars to dazzle and delight. No two are the same and some even have stars and stripes.
Petunias add bright pops of colour to gardens, pots or hanging baskets and have a nice, dense, mounding form with gently trailing stems. The flowers can bloom from spring to autumn, even longer in warmer climates.
Petunias have excellent cold tolerance, are renowned for being tough and producing amazing, weather resistant blooms. They make great fillers as your summer plants begin to fade and will continue blooming up to frost.
Plant your Petunia into moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Add a diluted liquid fertiliser fortnightly, or a slow release pelletised version every couple of months to keep them blooming at their best.
A light prune after the first flush will help prolong flowering. In pots and hanging baskets it is a good idea to use a good quality potting mix. In areas of hard frost they may have to be treated as annuals, they survive outdoors here in the hills with a bit of winter damage but shoot back quickly as the weather warms.
