I don't know about petunias specifically, but on some double-flowered plants, the reproductive organs are sacrificed, so to speak, by the creation of additional petals. So, on some double-flowered plants, if you can't find seedpods, it's can be because the plant isn't capable of producing them.

Thanks so much for the link it really helped . I cant find a seed pod on my doubles so maybe they cant set seed , I wonder if I can get like a cutting off of them and put it in root hormone to save them for next year? any one tried this?

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
