Louise Jones, College Lecturer, Botanic Gardens outlines how trailing Petunias have beautiful colours, amazing trailing habits, and will ensure you have some truly stunning displays in your hanging baskets and containers throughout the summer.

Petunia Surfinia offer a longer trailing cascade of colour and Petunia Peppy offer trailing in a more bushy spread with contrasting stripes in bold colours.

Feed and water petunia plants regularly. Deadheading will encourage more blooms.
