Growth Habit and Planting Instructions: The Petunia Supercascade Mix is an annual plant that reaches a height of about 10-16 inches with a spread of 10-12 inches. These petunias prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained, moderately fertile soil. To start your seeds, plant them indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost in your area. Barely cover the seeds with soil, as they need light to germinate. Maintain a consistent temperature of about 70-75°F until germination, which typically takes 5-15 days. Transplant the young plants outdoors after the risk of frost has passed, spacing them about 10-12 inches apart. Keep the soil moderately moist but not waterlogged. Given the maturity date of 65-75 days, you'll enjoy vibrant blooms in just over two months from planting.
