Planting

Plant the richly flowering petunia as soon as possible after receipt, in the garden or in a pot. Dig a hole and improve poor garden soil with potting compost or well-rotted manure. Plant the petunias approx. 20 cm apart. Fill the pots with soil (always use fresh potting compost) and press firmly in. Water immediately after planting. In full sun, Petunia will flower abundantly, all summer long.

Petunias grow beautifully in flower pots and hanging baskets

Petunias are just what you want for planting in pots, window boxes and hanging baskets. These young plants can be planted closely together in fresh potting compost. Make up lovely mixed baskets using Lobelia, hanging pelargoniums and verbena.
Beds and Borders
While petunias are extremely popular in hanging baskets, they also make the perfect plant for beds and borders! The long stems of the petunia will quite happily creep over the soil. Try a small border full of these summer flowering plants - or make a decorative edging along the garden path with these colourful petunias. The long stems look lovely draped over a low wall.
Tip: When your spring flowers are over, petunias are ideal for filling in those empty spaces in beds and borders. You can plant them right into July!
 
 

Care

Water extra in periods of drought. Keep the bed free of weeds and your petunias will thrive. Pretty undemanding but do not like to sit in wet soil for too long. Petunias thrive even in poor soil but regular feeding will have them flower abundantly. While in flower, feed your petunias fortnightly with soluble feed in the watering can. Regular deadheading will encourage your petunias to produce new flower buds. Petunias flower profusely from June through to the first frosts.

Extra

Petunia is an annual and grows to 25-30 cm tall. Originally this plant came from South America - the first we saw of them was in 1833, from Argentina. Of course growers have crossed and re-crossed them lots since then, giving us innumerable varieties! Now there are mostly hybrids for sale in the most lovely colours and shapes.  
Petunia is classified under Solanaceae and most hybrids are called P. x hybrida. However, there are just so many, they have since been sub-divided into sectors. We now know of the following sectors:
  • Petunia Grandiflora -large-flowered (flower size 10 cm), less weather resistant petunias.
  • Petunia Hedgiflora - very low-growing, strongly creeping ground cover petunias.
  • Petunia Multiflora - mid-sized flowers (flower size 5.1 cm), creeping, very bad weather resistant, can take a lot of sun.
  • Petunia Milliflora - small flowering (flower size 2.5 cm) petunias.
