When to sow
When to Sow Purple Velvet Petunia Pellets
February to March
Where to Sow
Sow petunia pellets on the surface of good free draining seed compost and lightly cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or a warm place at a temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F) until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days.
What to do Next
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 15-30cm (6-12") apart, or plant into containers. Overwinter September sowings in a cold frame then plant out the following spring.
Keep baskets well watered and fed with a high potash feed to prolong flowering all summer in baskets and containers.
