Hi all,

Maybe you remember my last post about the disappearing petunia? Well it died and got covered by the foliage of the other plants in the container. Yesterday I was looking around in there and guess what I saw. Loads and loads of ripe seed pods just waiting for me to find them. I'm so please that I found them and harvested them. Now I have several packets of them to trade down in the seed exchange.

yes I do. I thought I was going to be without petunias next year and I really like them. Now I know that I'm in good shape for them. I still have three plants left that can produce seeds so I'll have a good number for the seed exchange.

I love Petunias, also. I used to put them in my flower boxes. But, they get so leggy after awhile and don't look nice. One year I cut them back and fertilized them and they came back with a bang. I started getting the wave petunias even though they are more expensive and they got just as leggy. And in spite of what they say you do have to dead head the wave petunias. At least, I had to. These last few years I've been trying different flowers in my boxes, but nothing looks as nice as the petunias. I'm thinking I should pinch the tips so they don't get too leggy???? Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Sue

DId you ever try geraniums in your boxes? They seem to stay bushy and gorgous..
I also tried assylum last year in the hanging basket .....It was great till it got leggy.

This year I have baby blue eyes .. They are so nice for hanging baskets. Not leggy yet.. I also have marigolds in a hanging basket now, dwarf.. Very brilliant.

Hey Bonnie,

I'll look forward to seeing your post in the seed exchange. The lavendar is the only one I have that is a bi-color. The rest are solids. I have a white. a dark purple and a redish-purple one. Of course the bee's have been very busy so there is no telling what the seeds will produce lol.
