Show us your petunias for 2009! I will start! Here is a basket I recently bought. Actually I bought three, but took two apart for other projects becasue they were so thick.

I got five different colors from those baskets and we were all talking about seed, containers and what not on the earlyier part of this thread!

My basket here is a mixed bag of color and so there were no names, just colors so hopefully they will set seed, but time will only tell!

How often do you fertilize petunias? I lost a million bell basket one time. It was on the south side with very little shade. :(
