Hanging Petunia Plant

Zone Orem, Utah 84057 | Bkj255 added on August 6, 2017 | Answered

I was given a beautiful Petunia Hanging Flower for Mother's Day. It has been beautiful...continually blooming until lately. There is a lot of green growth but the beautiful petunias are not blooming as much. What do you suggest to make it bloom more now until October?

Have you been deadheading the plant? Petunias really benefit from having their spent flowers removed. This article will tell you all about that:

If you have mostly green growth right now, you could try pruning it back a bit. This article will tell you all about petunia pruning:
