petu­nias pretty

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Hanging Baskets -

Sun-lov­ing petu­nias are a real crowd-pleaser, and the spread­ing va­ri­eties have a trail­ing habit, mak­ing them ideal for hang­ing bas­kets and win­dow boxes. Give them welldrained soil with added fer­tiliser, don’t over­wa­ter – keep the soil moist, not wet – and liq­uid feed reg­u­larly dur­ing the grow­ing pe­riod. You can find pe­tu­nia hy­brids with a va­ri­ety of growth habits and flower types – sin­gle, dou­ble, small, large and ruf­fled – in a huge range of colours at your lo­cal nurs­ery. PS, if you like your blooms on the low-main­te­nance end of the scale, look for a va­ri­ety that doesn’t need dead­head­ing.
