Pe­tu­nias for win­ter, any­one?

Amateur Gardening - - Your Letters -

HARDY pe­tu­nias seem to have been de­vel­oped as I have seen them ad­ver­tised. I love pe­tu­nias in all shapes and sizes, but I get great de­light in hav­ing di­vided sea­sons, tak­ing the bed­ding plants out at the end of sum­mer, en­abling room for win­ter and spring plant­ing, and so the cy­cle goes on.

So I ask my­self, why would we want hardy bed­ding plants un­less we have huge ar­eas of flower beds where they can be left, still en­abling us more sea­sonal plant­ing? But in small gar­dens I can’t see them be­ing a vi­able hit.
