$1.95 $3.90
Introducing the Petunia Alderman Blue—excellent for gardeners looking for an early bloomer that can take full sun. This loveable plant is a half-hardy annual, so it will bring in the new season with vibrant your blues and violets much earlier than usual. Its blooms start off as beautiful blue-violet flowers and stay throughout the entirety of summer—a longer bloom window than most petunias! The strong, purple-tinted buds are attractive to pollinators and make it the perfect addition to any sunny space like window boxes, containers or baskets. Petunia Alderman Blue is easy to grow and thrive without needing too much care or water. Plus its long lasting nature makes it a great choice for any gardeners looking to freshen up their backyard's look.

Planting Instructions:
Plant the seeds indoors about 10-12 weeks before the last frost of spring. In a germination flat, press the seed into the surface of the soil; this seed needs light to germinate. Since this seed is tiny, mixing it with sand may help it spread evenly. Keep the soil lightly moist and in a warm place until germination, which usually takes 7-14 days. As soon as the seedlings can safely be handled, transplant them into individual pots; plant them outdoors after the last chance of frost. Water seedlings until they become established. Mature plants tolerate some drought, though they flourish with occasional watering. To encourage branching, pinch back the tips as they grow.
