Petunia x hybrida


Start inside 8 weeks before last frost. Sprinkle the tiny seed onto soil surface and gently press them in; do not cover. Provide light and constant warmth of 21-24°C (70-75°F). Use a bottom heat source for best results. Transplant after last frost into a full sun location. Will tolerate light shade but blooming will be reduced. Must be deadheaded regularly. Do not overwater or overfertilize. Use a low-nitrogen/high-phosphorus fertilizer sparingly.

Petunia Spacing - Fantasy Mix: 6-8 inches; Colorama, Prism, Celebrity and Double Cascade: 8-10 inches.
