Petunia seeds come from South America. Due to their adaptability, these flowers thrive in USDA hardiness zones 2 to 11. Petunias are renowned for their beauty and attractiveness to beneficial pollinators, bringing bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies to the garden. They are a great addition to garden ecosystems, adding diversity and color.


For an extended growing season and more blooms, planting petunia seeds indoors is recommended. Start 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date to get a jump on spring, as they require warm conditions to germinate. Use a light soil mix, barely covering the seeds. Keep the soil moist and provide plenty of light from start to transplantation outdoors. The seedlings are sensitive to cold and should go outside only when the weather is stable and warm. Space the plants about 10 to 12 inches apart to allow ample growth and air circulation.


Petunias are plants that love water. Especially during hot, dry periods, watering keeps the blooms vibrant and plentiful. They are relatively low-maintenance, but removing faded flowers can encourage more blooms. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering.
