Q.How to tell difference between my small petunias and trailing petunia plants

Zone SK6 3LA | Anonymous added on May 18, 2020 | Answered

I recently bought a number of petunia and trailing petunia plug plants which are now doing well in my greenhouse.

Unfortunately I have mixed the two varieties up and wonder if you can tell me how to identify which plant is which. One or two of the plants are starting to flower, but as I require the trailing ones for hanging baskets and pots and the ordinary ones for borders, I would be very grateful for any advice.

The trailing grandiflora plants generally have larger flowers than the more compact varieties.

They do transplant OK, as long as you are careful, so if you do find out that they are in the wrong place, you can change that pretty easily.
