Petunia - Salmon Velvet F1 Hybrid
This is the best ever trailing Petunia from seed! Following the success of our customer favourite Purple Velvet we have the next colour in the series, Salmon Velvet. These will outperform expensive cutting-raised Surfinia Petunias. Producing trailing stems up to 1m in length, continuously smothered in blooms all summer until the first frosts. It can also be planted in borders, where it will make very effective ground cover.
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, 23-3cm apart.
