These stunning flowers that come in a wide range of colours, are exactly what you want to spill from your hanging baskets and brighten up your borders.
How to grow:
Even though you can grow petunias from seeds, it is much easier to just grow them from transplants. Transplants need to be planted in light, well-drained soil in full sun after the last spring frost. Petunias are able to grow in partial shade, but they will have fewer flowers. It's better if the plants have shelter from the wind.
How to care:
Petunias are heat tolerant so there is no need for you water them often. A thorough watering once a week should be adequate. The spreading types and those in containers do require more frequent watering though. Fertilize your plants monthly to ensure decent growth. You need to remove dead flowers to prolong the blooming period.
