Pot up petunia plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions for transplanting later on. 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.

Seeds and garden supplies will normally be delivered within the time period stated against each product as detailed above.

  1. Love them in hanging baskets

    By Eileen Perkins 14-08-2011

    When the Petunias arrived they looked very healthy, i potted them up in the Thompson and morgons double hanging basket and also in one of there fabulous Eezee hanging baskets and also in the baskets i used there push n feed tablets and i knew being a busy mum i would not have to worry about feeding them throughout the growing season and wow what a display i had of the purple Petunias they cascaded around the baskets and the fragrance was wonderful, they seem to go on forever and i am certanly going to order these again.

  2. Beautiful

    By Wendy Stanbury 23-07-2011

    An easy petunia to grow with amazing results. A fabulous display of bright cheery purple blooms that just keep getting bigger & better. Feed regularly and these won't let you down because they grow up & outward as well as trail down. A real wow-factor and i'd recommend them to anyone as they are so easy and such a lovely display.

  3. Top performers

    By Kevin Ward 19-06-2011

    I wondered if these would challenge the cutting raised plants for flower power and vigour. They have been so strong from the first pricking out. After a few weeks they looked so bushy and they continued to make top class basket and tub plants. I shall order these again next year for sure.
