How to Germinate Petunia from Seed
Start them early spring
Prepare a pot or plant cells with a seed compost and stand your pot or cells in the water.
I Prefer Cells for these unless you are growing them in their final home like a pot
Once the soil is damp to the touch on the top you know your soil is wet enough to sow.
Sprinkle the seeds finley across the compost spacing them out, push them into the soil but do not cover!
These seeds need light to germinate
Now you need to create a humid atmosphere with clingfilm,if using a pot just pull the Clingfilm tight over the top .
Within a few hours you should see condensation if you dont the clingfilm isnt tight enough or air is getting in.
With cells you do the same thing but will need to cover the seeds and the base and the sides to create the humid enviroment.
Place in a warm sunny spot germination can take a few days to 2 weeks.
The pot should self water if the cling film is tight enough if it looks dry stand your post or cells in water and let it soak from the base.
When big enough seperate the seedlings out into pots or cells they can be slowly exposed to the outside weather to harden off
Please note Petunia are not frost hardy so do not place outside until after the last frost if in the UK
Start by exposing them outside for just a few hours if in a colder climate
Petunias will continue to flower all summer
This is not a F1 Variety
