We wanted to offer a mixture that would allow you to grow a lot of those wonderful varieties that you see at the garden center in the spring. Some of the highlights are a dramatic carmine, white-throated pinks, reds, and blues, a lovely veined pink, a delicate salmon, a number of red/white, and blue/white bicolors, a pristine ultra white, and deep, deep ultra blue as well as a number of star types.

Care: When grown in containers petunias need to be fertilized and watered regularly. This will keep the plants blooming all season long. During the heat of summer, they will need to be watered a few times a week. When growing petunias in the ground amend the soil with compost before planting. Apply a liquid fertilizer every 1-2 weeks or use a time-release fertilizer at planting time.
