The world's first double trailing petunia range for baskets and tubs with heavily scented blooms which last all summer long. Excellent compact and neat trailing plant habit. Attractive, unique and early flowering.
Plant in Hanging baskets, window boxes and patio containers for a stunning show.
Trailing petunias are great for hanging baskets and patio containers either on their own or mixed with other basket plants. The beautiful flowers cover the foliage with continuous blooms. These are early flowering and will flower all summer long. They require little dead heading and are self branching making them easy to look after.
How to grow on:
Plugs should be planted into a good quality peat or John Innes based compost. We do not reccomend growing in grow bags, peat free or homemade compost as too many nutient problems can occur.
Keep the compost fairly moist, but not waterlogged. If you notice a yellowing of the leaves during the early growing stages this is probably due to the plants drying out. Try to avoid keeping the foliage wet for prolonged periods to prevent Botrytis and Mildew diseases and do not allow plants to be wet overnight
We recommend poting into 9cm pots or packs on arrival and planting into baskets and tubs when the roots have filled the pots.
Plants should be grown in a well lit and well ventilated environment. Strict hygiene and ventilation should be observed to avoid disease problems. Light feeding should begin 3 weeks after planting. After 4 weeks plants should be budded up and ready for potting on into borders pots or baskets for you to enjoy. When the baskets or planters are established increase the feeding - we use tomorite, normal diluted strength on a weekly basis.
Petunias will grow happily in a greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory and prefer to be grown cool to establish a compact habit but should be protected from frost.
