Petunia - Carpet Mixed
This is a very dwarf petunia, with a spreading habit and medium-sized flowers, in a wide colour range that quickly smother the plants. It is excellent for adding to borders, baskets or containers, showing good resistance to bad weather.
Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks.
