Purple Tie Dye Hybrid Shock Wave Petunia Seeds 5965. Annual.
Approx. 8 seeds/pkt (8,500-10,000 seeds/gram)
The earliest spreading petunia to flower. You’ll be surprised at how quickly one plant with its masses of 4 cm (1 1/2″) flowers can fill a 25 cm (10″) basket to over-flowering. These lush, self-cleaning plants with their mounded, spreading foliage recover from rain faster than all other petunias. Height 20-25 cm (8-10″) with a spread of 60-90 cm (24-36″).
How to Grow
Start seed indoors in a soil-less mix 6-8 weeks before planting out time. Since the seed is so small, leave it uncovered on the surface of the growing medium. Pelleted seed must be lightly misted after sowing until the seed coating dissolves completely or germination may not occur at all. Apply bottom heat to keep the growing medium temperature at 25°C (77°F) for the 14 day germination period. After germination, grow on under lights at a cooler temperature of 15°C (60°F) until hardening off and planting out to a sunny spot in late May. Space plants 20 cm (8″) apart in the garden.
