Description

Free-flowering grandiflora petunias bloom continuously in 4-inch flowers

Plug crop time: 4 to 5 weeks
Transplant to finish: 5 to 6 weeks

Plant Daddy Mix, grandiflora petunias, the most popular type, in spring, and from spring through late summer, the free-flowering plants bloom continuously in large, 4-inch, single flowers that are prominently and prettily veined. This mix includes the blue, red, sugar, and peppermint Daddy varieties.

Typically grown as an annual in most areas, this highly popular herbaceous plant has an upright, mounded habit. Quite versatile, it prefers full sun to light shade and average, medium moisture soils but tolerates many types of soil, including poor soil, if drainage is good. Best grown in containers or hanging baskets.

Sow seed indoors 10 to 12 weeks before you want to set them outside, acclimatize seedlings outside over 7 to 10 days after the last spring frost, and transplant when day temperatures are in the 62 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit range and night temperatures are in the 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit range.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.
