Pot up plugs and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise petunias to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days and transplant them into their final positions in containers and borders. Plant climbing petunias in a sunny position with shelter from strong winds, in any light, well drained soil. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on.
Feed and water petunia plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. As the long stems increase in length, tie them onto a support such as a freestanding climbing frame, using soft twine to train them upwards. Pinch the stems back for a second time. Regular deadheading of petunia flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.

  1. Wonderful

    By Jeanette Baldock 15-08-2012

    Have had so many comments, planted 4 in a large tub and they have been amazing, good height and all round width even put some in single wall baskets and these are the best ever - had a second order later on for a second tub and hanging basket and these are still looking brilliant, ordering for next year already Jeanette Baldock

  2. Still going strong after 3 years

    By Helen Toft 29-05-2012

    I still have the original plants that I put in three years ago and I am amazed each spring that they are still going and as a 'perennial' the are in flower way before anyone else's annual petunias. They have never however reached to top of the frame but this year I intend to feed well every week with the aim of getting them to the top. Brilliant plants. I do live in Weymouth on the south coast which may help.
