Petunia Night Sky Series is an amazing collection of flowers that come in a handful of colors now. The absence of pigment in the form of a dot makes this flower so starry unique. The petunias with the “dotted” or “spotted” petals have become the new fad in annual gardens.

They are highly sought after and many nurseries sell out of them within a few weeks of offering them for sale. Sometimes you can find petunia seeds for sale.

Petunia Cold Hardiness

Petunias are perennials in USDA hardy zones 9 – 11, but are grown as annuals everywhere else in the U.S. They prefer night temperatures between 57 and 65 F. Petunias can tolerate 39 F (4 C.) and cannot survive winters of freezing temperatures.

Night Sky Petunia Care

Sunlight

Petunias need at least 5 or 6 hours of good sunlight; they’ll perform even better when located in full sun all day. The more shade they receive, the fewer flowers they’ll produce.

Is Petunia Night Sky a Perennial or Annual?

Petunias are perennial, although most bedding types are grown as annuals from seed each year. The trailing varieties, such as Surfinias, are perennial and are grown from cuttings or new plants.

When can Petunias be planted?

They can be planted outside from early May, once all danger of frost has passed. We recommend planting three or four plugs in a 30cm diameter basket or pot for a full display come June. Plant in a hole deep enough to accommodate the plug. Use freshly prepared soil or a balance potting compost when planting.

Water

You will probably need to water the hanging baskets every day. Hanging baskets containing annuals such as petunias will need more water than houseplants. They will also need more fertilizer but if your pot feels heavy, you should have sufficient water for the time being.

Petunia Night Sky Fertilizer

Garden petunias like a balanced fertilizer such as 8-8-8, 10-10-10, or 12-12-12. In early to mid-July, start using a liquid fertilizer every two to three weeks.

Deadheading

The occasional deadheading will provide an even bigger boost to flower production. Once the flower begins to fade, remove it, along with the small stem that attaches it to the plant. However, deadheading is not necessary because petunias are prolific bloomers.

    I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece Los Angeles celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I have read in Elle that they were bought out by a UK-based hedge fund in excess of $50 million. I have just bought the Dimepiece Dream Big Unisex Heavy Blend™ Hooded Sweatshirt from Ebay and totally love it xox

    Thanks for enabling me to gain new tips about computers. I also have the belief that one of the best ways to maintain your laptop in best condition has been a hard plastic-type case, or maybe shell, that will fit over the top of one’s computer. Most of these protective gear are generally model targeted since they are manufactured to fit perfectly on the natural housing. You can buy them directly from the vendor, or from third party sources if they are readily available for your laptop, however not every laptop may have a shell on the market. Just as before, thanks for your recommendations.

    Thanks for your posting on this blog. From my personal experience, occasionally softening up a photograph could provide the digital photographer with a dose of an artsy flare. Oftentimes however, that soft blur isn’t just what exactly you had at heart and can quite often spoil an otherwise good image, especially if you intend on enlarging the item.
