Colour your garden with a minimum of fuss. These new selections of Petunia are easy to grow in sunny positions. Planted into large containers, baskets, combinations and in garden beds they excel. These are so easy to grow that they are virtually maintenance free and perpetually in bloom during the warmer months.
Bubblegums™ look superb in containers or hanging baskets on a patio, deck or in a courtyard or planted in your garden. Bubblegums™ are the ideal plants for adding long-lasting potted colour highlights to the low-maintenance ‘outdoor room’. Individual colours can be planted alone or in combinations or mix and match Bubblegums™ with other flowering plants. They can be planted in garden beds for a mass display, for eye-catching highlights or as great ground cover.
Grow Bubblegums™ in full sun. Plant into well-prepared, well-drained garden beds rich in humus, or use a premium potting mix in containers. Water well until the plant is established and then water as needed. Apply flower-boosting liquid fertiliser rather than fertiliser that is high in nitrogen, which will encourage foliage at the expense of flowers. Prune plants every few months to remove spent flowers. Cut back to the edge of the pot or basket. Pruning will rejuvenate the plants if done several times during the year when they are getting leggy. At this time add slow release fertilizer to the garden or pot.
Bubblegums™ were bred in Japan and trialled in many parts of the world. They were selected for their free flowering qualities over many months of the year. They have superior vigour and greater disease resistance than earlier Petunia strains.
