Testing seeds against minimum germination standardsGreat products

Have planted their Whopper tomato plants for years and they're our favorites. Also your petunias or what used to be called petunias are lovely. I used to have a greenhouse and planted your petunia seeds each spring and our hanging baskets were incomparable. Now I buy your plants. Thanks for all your fine work.

Petunia is the botanical name for Petunia
Petunia Germination Information

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packetsHow to Sow Petunia:

  • Best sown indoors at a temperature of 70-75°
  • Sow 10-12 weeks before last frost and expect germination in 10 days
  • In order for seeds of double-flowered or F1 hybrids to germinate, they will need a temperature of 80°
  • In either case, sow with NO cover as light aids in germination
  • Petunia seeds are some of the only seeds that can be germinated in full sun
  • It is not recommended to sow seeds outdoors

How to Grow Petunia:
Transplanting: Transplant when there are at least two sets of true leaves

Spacing: Plant out after danger of frost is past at 12 inches apart in full sun and a rich, light, sandy soil with excellent drainage

Soil: Feed monthly with a balanced fertilizer. The single-flowered forms will tolerate alkaline and poor soils

Temperature: For best results, grow on under full sun at 65-75° days/62-68° nights, however plants are tolerant of higher and lower temperatures

Additional Care: To keep plant growth in check, pinch plants back when 6 inches tall and again after the first flush of flowers. For conservatory culture: site in full sun, maintain 50° nights, and allow the soil to become dry between waterings

Yep, they'll do a number on geranium flowers

And also petunias, and other ornamental tobacco family plants. There's a good little article from Sunset on the problem here:
Looks like you can use the "organic" Bacillus (BT) for control besides picking each little worm out of there. BT's about the only thing to spray on anyway, since the pest is apparently notoriously immune to insecticides.

Petunias

Look on leaves for little brown flecks if u find them, u most likely have budworms. the flecks r their poop. they destroy flowers,buds and leaves. I have recently seen japanese beetles obliterate the poor plants in two days. try spraying water lightly over plants and then quickly scan for moving insects, as this may help to identify them..or...shake plant over a bag and see if a bug drops in. this can he also help identify. could b slugs if there is mulch near . check soil on ground or pot for snails ,slugs etc. I hand pick most slugs,snails, and beetles and have good results.good luck
