Sowing, Seeds, Planting Half-hardy annuals will require protection until after the last frosts. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for 7-10 days before moving to their final position. For growing in pots, use as large a container as possible, as this won't dry out so quickly and will require less watering. As a general guide we recommend 9-10 plants to a 40cm (16in) diameter container. Put plenty of crocks in the bottom for drainage and part-fill with a good quality, multi-purpose peat-free compost. Position your plants and backfill with compost ensuring the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Water well to settle the soil.
Care Tips Deadhead to prolong the flowering period. These will work well in a container pot in a sunny position. Water well in the first two weeks, to prevent the plant from drying out. Apply liquid fertiliser fortnightly to improve performance.
Flowering June - October
Vase Life Petunias make lovely, trailing cut flowers. Sear the stem end in boiling water for 10 seconds, before (ideally) storing in deeper cold water for a couple of hours. Then arrange.
