Since the thunderstorm we had a couple of nights ago my petunia blossoms are looking droopy. They are still in the containers I bought them in because I haven’t had a chance to plant them yet. The soil around them seems still damp even though they have been in the sunlight for a couple of days. I don’t like droopy plants and I am tempted just to throw them away but plants are not cheap. What do I need to do to perk up the blooms? The leaves are not droopy and I hate to cut all of the blooms off and start over but maybe that is what I need to do. Please advise.
I have several thoughts. One is that the weather has been cool for petunias. They like summer temperatures and sunshine. So don't throw them away; they will perk up. It will help to plant or repot them. Often the container they come in is too small. Each flower only lasts a few days then wilts and drops off to be replaced by more flowers. It is this unending supply of flowers that make petunias popular. Click on the link to see more tips for growing petunias. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/petunia/petunia-care.htm
