i know they're not the most sophisticated or popular amongst proper gardeners, but I like to plant out petunias in hanging baskets, I find they're pretty much instant gratification, and look great from young till midlife.
I've noticed though that they seem to completely fall off a cliff as regards their look.
Mine looked amazing last week, absolutely massive from only a few plants, but this week thstart all starting to look a bit straggly, and aren't producing many flowers.
I'm looking after them, water them every day, used good soil with a slow release feed, and try to pull the dead heads off, although I fall behind at this a bit.
is there any way I can keep them going another month? It'd be nice to take them through August. I'm almost tempted to snip them right down?
