- Petunia Red Picotee petunias have very large flowers and are best grown in containers or hanging baskets (because they are more susceptible to rain damage).
- You can grow petunias from seeds, but it is easier to grow them from transplants. If you are going to grow from seeds, start them indoors 10 to 12 weeks before you want to set them outside. Petunia seeds are very small and needs lots of light in order to germinate. Remember to water them. When the plants have three leaves, you can plant them outside.
- It’s best to buy transplants and plant them in light, well-drained soil in full sun after the last spring frost.Petunias can grow in partial shade, but they will have fewer flowers. It’s better if the plants have shelter from the wind.
- Space the plants about 1 foot apart.
- If you’re planting petunias in containers, use a soil-less mix.
