Petunia - Colour Parade Mixed F1 Hybrid
This is a very special mixture with over 20 different types of large flower. There are some clear, pure colours, a sprinkling of colours with white stars, some picotee edged in white and others with darker veins and soft radiating centres. They make a spectacular display for bedding, or just planted in large containers. Height: 22-30cm.
Sow from February to April at 21-27C on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Keep soil moist but not wet. Do not exclude light, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 10-21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 3cm apart in a sunny spot on light well drained soil.
