Tidal Wave Petunias

posted by: mmsc on 08.26.2007 at 11:37 pm in Annuals Forum

It's my first time growing the tidal wave variety from seed, and so far they're really fast growers(compared to other petunias). I'd like to know if they should be pinched like regular petunias, or should I just let them grow? They seem to branch out on their own (picture). I'm also aware that they are heavy feeders.. so can I start fertilizing right now or wait till they get bigger? I plan on using them on window boxes and hanging baskets.

Showing Off my Seedlings

I started a few plants from seed Jan 19th, and have been adding to them pretty much every week since. I have about 25 trays of plants going now.

This is my 4th year growing all of my annuals from seed. I use 4ft shop lights and plastic cups.

Here are a few of the biggest/healthiest, so far. They are all in 9 oz cups now.

Tidal Waves that I have cut back twice already.

Yellow Horizon Petunia, a much more compact growth habit, so I have not cut them back yet.

LImelight and Black Dragon Coleus. These are the biggest. a lot of the black dragon are half the size, but growing. I topped them a few days ago to encourage branching.

Dandy Dahlia MIx - a small bedding Dahlia

Maverick Coral Geraniums, I topped these too.

All of my wintered over zonal geraniums are blooming now, they are just in windows. I have never had them burst into bloom so early.

Spring is coming!
