Planted seedlings needs soil mulching... Then you need to regularly weed and loosen the soil. Petunia will not refuse fertilizers either - organic, humic and complex mineral dressings are suitable.

Petunia responds well for spraying and frequent watering - this is the key to abundant flowering and lush growth.

When growing petunias in open areas, you should beware of the rains... Water droplets do not have the best effect on the appearance of the delicate flowers and leaves of the plant. Therefore, if this is possible, then it is better to hide boxes and pots with petunias under the roof or other shelters.
