Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
    Growing Instructions:

    Start Petunia seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in your area. Follow the seed depth and spacing guidelines indicated below. Once all danger of frost has passed, seedlings should be hardened off before planting into their growing location. Seedlings should be transplanted according to the plant spacing directions below. Pick a location sheltered from the wind and receives at least 6 hours of sun per day. Regularly monitor your plants and ensure that the soil remains moist, but not soggy while they establish themselves in their new environment.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Growing Suggestions:
  • Petunias require full sun, or they will become spindly. They do not flower well in shade.
  • Do not apply too much nitrogen fertilizer as this will encourage more foliage than flowers.
  • Regularly removing spent flowers, known as deadheading will promote continuous blooming and encourage the growth of fresh buds.
  • ​Petunias put alot of energy into flower and by midsummer, most petunias tend to get leggy, producing blossoms at the tips of long, leafless stems. To keep petunias tidy and flowering, prune the shoots back to about half their length. This will encourage more branching and more flowers.
