The Tidal Wave series of petunias are truly amazing. They flower from May to November, self-seed around the base of the pot in which they were planted the previous year and flower their socks off with little or no deadheading.
We used ‘Tidal Wave Silver’ as a cut flower last summer too. It excelled in all ways in its container trial. An absolute must if this is one of your colours.
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.
