Planted Petunia's in my garden a couple of weeks ago. Well, put them in pots because in the normal ground they don't do as well. The Petunia comes in many colors and it's just an amazing plant. It does have some requirements. Plenty of fertilizer (I use grains that give off nutrients for 6 months) and plenty of water. If it dries out and it can happen quite easily, than it's done. So water them (practically) every day and you get some amazing growth and flowers. It's also a plant that keeps on flowering throughout the summer. In these parts of Europe it doesn't survive the winter which is a shame. One last tip, periodically check for snails because because some them like to snack on the plant.
