The best-ever basket petunia from seed! Petunia Rose Vein Velvet is the latest colour in the velvet series and promises to be as impressive! Like the others in the series, Rose Vein Velvet will out-perform expensive cutting raised Surfinia petunias. The lovely trailing stems, up to 1m (3ft) in length, look fantastic in baskets, window boxes and other containers where they will be continuously smothered in blooms all summer long. Also makes useful and attractive ground cover.

1 Packet (12 Petunia Seeds) (TM08490)
Sow late winter to mid spring at 21-24C (70-75F) on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Keep damp but not wet. Do not exclude light, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 10-21 days.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil. For pot plants, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots; grow cool, well ventilated, give plenty of light, but shade from direct sun.

Lovely flower but not suited to wind and rain 2011-08-09
They were a lovely flower,original and very striking. I am not sure if they suit a wet and windy climate because every time it rained and we had a bit of wind the flowers were devastated and the plants had to start all over again. So I may be a bit reluctant to purchase this particular petunia again. I had some Rose Vein Petunia seeds from you and they were beautiful and no trouble in the rain and wind.
