Petunia Daddy Mix
Daddy is a vigorous spreading type petunia, with large grandiflora-type blooms with wavy edges that stand up to the rain. The six colours in the series range from silvery pastel pink through to blues and the deepest orchid purple, each are distinctly veined. They are well-known for earliness, uniformity and weather tolerance.
These compact plants spread to around 25 to 30cm (10 to 15in). They rapidly fill in large areas, cover the plants in a multitude of showy colour, yet are so low on maintenance
Plant in a full sun location. They will tolerate light shade but blooming will be reduced. Use a low-nitrogen/high-phosphorus fertilizer sparingly. Do not over water or over fertilise, Over watering will yellow and kill the plants. Petunias are sticky and will attract greenfly so keep an eye on them. Don't over water in the winter and keep them well ventilated
Sow seed in seedling trays or in flat beds, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-75°F. Germination is in 7-21 days. Transplant into the garden 7-18 inches apart.

While sowing seeds make sure the soil is damp and not wet. Water the seeds as the soil starts to dry. It should always be moist, but never wet or muddy. Do not water the seeds if the soil is already moist to the touch, as overwatering your plant can be just as harmful as underwatering.
Keep the seedling tray in bright filtered light to begin with. Slowly introduce the plant to morning sun and bring it back in before the afternoon sun sets in. In a weeks time you can put it in direct sunlight.
