White spots on Petunias flowers

Healthy petunias have a better chance of withstanding infection and infestations than weak ones. Make sure your petunias are getting enough sun, water and fertilizer. Petunias prefer full sun but, in places with very hot afternoon sun, a little afternoon shade is best.

Artificial Petunia flowers

This the first year we ve had more than the odd one or two bedding plants. This is largely because I don t rate annuals as good value for money - they only last one season. On the other hand there have been a lot of perennials that have lasted only one season or less thanks to the pests and weather so maybe the perennials aren t always that good value either in Tipperty. Anyhow this year we have a few hundred bedding plants because we got freebies …

Petunias Flowers in containers

When choosing containers I try to use the most common ceramic, metal, plastic and wooden boxes, hanging baskets, flower pots and vases. To add a new touch to my garden, I think to combine several containers of different shapes, or may be to paint plastic and metal ones as I like. Keep in mind that containers of ceramic or wood evaporate moisture faster, but they allow oxygen to plant roots. I have old containers made of metal and plastic that retain …
