how many trailing petunias should I put in a 12/14" basket



I always put more in hanging baskets than I should. What are you going to put in there with them? Are they a trailing or upright variety? I put in 7 or 8 with some ivy and lobelia and alysum. I had a beautiful display last year with the lobelia trailing down about 3 feet. Remember to water them regularly throughout the summer and you will be rewarded with a summer long display. My winter hanging baskets are still full of flowers but I am ready to do up the summer ones but don't have th eheart to get rid of the winter ones yet, they're still very pretty, full of flowers.
