Petunia Galore


By alextb


I never relaised how many petunias I grew until I looked through my photos on my laptop.

Below are some of the best.

Purple with White Stripes


The purples


Whites and Reds

Double Pink and White


Which of the above was your favourite?

Mine is the one in the first 2 pictures, (purple with white stripes), and thepurple ones in the pot on the wall and the purple one below it.

I like them all, I love Petunia's anway..I went for doubles this year,and wasn't too keen at first,as not as prolific as the singles,are they? but as they have matured,they have got better..I have that pink and white double..very pretty..:o)

I was also not so sure when I grew the doubles for the first time this year, but they seemed O.K, but not as prolific.

I like the second two purples! I had a surfina in that colour and the perfume was amazing and it totally overflowed in the pot. Not particularly a petunia lover but Im a great believer in a plant for places..and this certainly has a place in my hanging pots!

The only bit I don't like about ptunias is the fact that when I am trying to deadhead I end up with sticky fingers.

I do love the purple surfinias in that hanging bucket, and my neighbour loves them too.

Oh yes, forgot about the sticky fingers lol!
