Petunia Germination Information

How 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

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
