Spacing:

12 per 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in the a bed/ border
A good rule of thumb when planting a hanging basket is to use one plant per inch of basket diameter - so 12 plants per 12 inch (30cm) basket. Strong-growing plants such as Fuchsias and Geraniums (Pelargoniums) require more space, so reduce to 5 plants per 30cm 12 inch (30cm) basket. When planting out in the ground, you can space the plants even further, as there is not such a need for a desnse display. Increase to 6 inches for most annuals and 8 inches for the strong growing plants

Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

The most common Petunia problems include Aphids, Budworms, Mites and Leaf Miners. For Aphids, check the leaves regularly for any possible infestation. If you see some, try to pick the bugs off with your hands and spray the infected area with some soapy water. You can also plant a companion plant nearby, such as Marigolds, which will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the aphids. For Leaf Miners, non-pesticide methods to combat against the bugs are to spray your plant down with Neem Oil and to also purchase specific parasitic wasps which will target the Miners and cause them to die. Again, Neem Oil is a good tool to use against Budworms and Mites to.

Water Often

Ensure that the soil does not dry out for too long. This will often call for a deep watering once a week. However, during hot, dry spells, this can require you to water the plant every day, especially if the plant is in a hanging basket or pot.

Full Sun

Petunias should be planted somewhere they receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.

Fertile, Well-Draining Soil

The best soil to use is a quality potting mix or garden compost which is filled with rich organic matter and drains water away easily.

Feed Regularly

Feed every two weeks during the growing period with a high-potash feed such as liquid-tomato feed. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png
