Seed Germination & Planting Seeds
Germinate Petunia Wave series at 22-24C, sow seed thinly onto compost in trays, pots or plu cells, do not cover the seed with compost or vermiculite. Shade from direct sunlight and cover trays with glass to maintain humidity. Seed should be ready for transplanting approx 3 weeks after sowing, dependant on conditions. Once transplanted and plants are established temperature can be dropped to approx 10C and protected from frost, lower growing temperatures produce well branched vegative plants. At the lower temperatures plants will take longer to flower. Cool dry growing, allowing the plants to dry between watering will keep the plants more compact, plants require good ventilation and  do not allow plants to be wet overnight.
