Greenthumb's Garden


Genus: Petunia.

Species: Petunia surfinia.

Loving the fragrance of petunia, I find I love to some around each year. I like needing to deadhead them and do so with sharp snippers, since they are relatively sticky. Protected a bit on the porch they have always done well in boxes. Potted they seem to prefer shallower pots, deeming them perfect for the hanging basket. All around, they are great and enjoyable. Should be fed to get best results, I'm not a big feeder so I'm a bit more hit and miss, though I'm about to change that. :-)
