How to ensure that your petunias stay beautiful in the heat

The right spot

Always try to place petunias in a sunny spot, as they need lots of sunlight.

Water

If you have the opportunity, collect rainwater for your petunias. Do not water them every few days only, but at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.

Nutrients

Petunias absorb the nutrients in the soil very quickly, and therefore the nutrients need to be replaced constantly. Feed them with a nutrient solution added to water 1-2 times a week.

Trimming shoots

For continuous and long-lasting flowering, cut back the shoots once a week, even if the plant is in bloom. Be careful not to leave shoots longer than 50 cm to ensure abundant flowering and a long life.
