Start Petunia seeds for a great, old-fashioned annual that performs all summer long. Petunias are one of the most colorful annuals for the summer garden. Dwarf Petunias are sturdy, compact and low-growing providing an abundance of dark violet flowers. Petunia Alderman is excellent for mass plantings in the garden, or even in pots or hanging baskets. Petunia flower care includes: deadheading faded flowers for best display and to keep it full of color all season long and fertilizing regularly with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
INSTRUCTIONS : Petunia seeds are tiny and notoriously slow to germinate.
Do not cover petunia seeds with soil, they need light to germinate. Water from below so the seeds aren't disturbed. Germination in 5 to 15 days at normal indoor house temperatures. For optimum growth, place new sprouts under fluorescent lights for 12 hours daily to simulate late spring light conditions.
While petunias will bloom in bright, indirect light, they do their best in full sun. Petunias like fertile soil which drains well and is neutral to slightly acid (pH 6.0 to 7.0). Light, sandy soil is ideal.
Break up the soil by digging, mix in some organic matter, and then smooth and level it. Dig a hole for each petunia seedling about the size of its container. Carefully pop each one from its container, set it in its hole, and then fill in the dirt around the roots, pressing gently. Do not set the seedling any deeper into the soil than it was in its container. Water Generously.
