Flower Care
Petunias

Location: Morning or Full Sun

Watering: The pouch should be heavy if you are watering properly. Hot weather will require more watering.
Just because it has rained doesn't mean
that water has actually gotten in the pouch. So water even on rainy days.

Fertilizer: Schultz Bloom Plus 10-54-10, or Peters. Follow instructions on package for heavy rate for bedding flowers.

If the leaves are yellowing increase fertilizer. Also watch for powdery mildew.  It will appear as a white powder on the leaves. On first sign of the mildew you will need to purchase and apply a fungicide labeled for use on bedding flowers. A premixed spray bottle  can be purchased in the home and gardening section.   Remove from hot sun when spraying.  Follow manufacturers instructions.
