Growing Violet Sky Petunias from Seeds

  • Best when germinated in very warm conditions. Ensure a minimum temperature of 21 degrees is maintained at all times, during the germination period. This can take a maximum of 21 days from sowing.
  • Gently firm seeds into a high quality compost, ensure not to cover fully as they need plenty of light to germinate. Use small pots or seed trays which can be covered, in an polythene wrap or bag.
  • Ensure the compost is moist before wrapping, placing pots or trays in an area which receives full direct sunlight.
  • Check reguarly to ensure that moisture is retained inside. After 21 days, seedlings should have emerged with small stems.
  • Allow a few more days before removing the wrap. At this point, the seedlings can be transplanted to cooler conditions.
  • If planting seedlings outdoors, be sure to acclimatize over a period of 2 weeks.
