Petunia - Strawberry Sundae
This is a large flowered multiflora with a gorgeous colour combination of strawberry-red veining in a star pattern, on a blush background. It flowers over a long period on bushy, uniform plants. Height: 23-30cm.
Sow February to April on the surface of good, free-draining, seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C until after germination which takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm pots. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 23-30cm apart.
