Pot up petunia plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions for transplanting later on. Alternatively, plant plugs directly into flower pouches.Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant which will produce more flowers later on. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before transplanting them outdoors into baskets, window boxes and containers in well drained soil, in full sun.
Feed and water petunia plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of petunia flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.

There was a delay in getting these plants to me as T&M accidentally sent me the wrong petunia and, of course, I didn't know that until they flowered! But I'm quite glad that they were delayed otherwise they would have been finished much earlier in the season.
I was interested to read Shihan's review saying that the flowers were trailing close to the ground. Mine have a distinct 'candelabra' habit and show no inclination to trail. In fact, the few that have gone over the edge of the baskets have snapped with the weight of flowers and have had to be removed.
That said, they are still absolutely stunning and I shall buy them again next year.
Only 4/5 as I expected more of a trailing habit.

I planted them in a tower pot and now they are almost cower it. I have had a lot of compliments and definitely will grow them next year.
I wish I can upload the photos to share as well.
