The best season for petunias is from October till May. Planting is done after the rains as these do not tolerate heavy rains. Seasonal flowering but it is worth the show!

Plants grow from seeds and are not transplanted by cuttings.

Watering care is most important as they need well draining soil. The roots are very delicate and do not tolerate more water. Even dry spells are not good for the plant as the delicate roots dry up very fast. Regular watering is required daily. wn in hanging baskets.

Wide mouthed basket of cane layered with dried roots and dead foliage act as nourishment to this plant. Fertilize it with salts and compost for more flowering but do not over do it.There are a variety of colours and patterns available in this type of flowering plants. And new shades are always added every year by cross breeding seeds of the original colours.

They always flower in bunches and hence quite a number of flowers are always visble on the plant. This is a very nice way of bringing colour in your garden, balcony or window sill. Care must be taken to avoid over watering other wise there is root root and the plant comes out of the pot due to mushy roots.

Too much sunlight also damages the foliage and the green leaves dry out as also the roots dry out resulting in death of the plant. Continuous exposure of direct sunlight must be avoided also keeping in mind that sunlight is very necessary for all flowering plants.Partial shade or place having exposure of sun only during first half of the day is ideal for healthy growth.

1. Water – Flowers need about 3 cm of water per week and during the hottest summer temperatures will require more water more frequently. The best time to water is between 6:00 and 9:00 AM.
If possible, use a soaker hose to water your flowering plants. Keep in mind, hanging baskets and pots tend to dry out more quickly and will require more frequent watering. Overhead watering using spray hoses or sprinklers should be avoided, because it can increase the risk of diseases such as botrytis or grey mold.
2.Deadheading – Dead or dying flowers should be removed as soon as possible to prevent seed production

Water them well in this heat

Pkants in pots need a lot of water when it gets hot.
I had the same Q about leggy petunias.
Here are instructions about pruning petunias:
" Sometimes these plants can become ‘leggy’ or when they have lots of stem and less flowers and leaves. These plants are not very attractive and can be refreshed by cutting the stem all the back and allowing it to re-grow. You can prevent your petunia plants from becoming ‘leggy’ by pruning back growing tips. To do this, find the point on each stem, usually located near the tip, where new growth is coming from and pinch that tip off
