Feara, after much thought , please remove me on your list. Petunias are very invasive here at my arch an I don't need more.LOL
However you have the loveliest collection.
Mine are at the mailbox an come back yearly an the neighbor cuts them back. Right now they are 2 inches high again.
thanks for the consideration.

Hi everyone~I counted up the votes for the flowers we want and here are the results~I did not count the votes of people who dropped out. I did add them in to compare but it made no difference to the highest votes.

If there was one that you really wanted that did not win, I can give you the link to the ebay seller who has that seed and you can either send some to me to share with the group or grow them at home if you want a bunch of that kind.

All of these seeds are coated as petunia seeds are so darn small. It is much easier to control planting of these tiny things with coated seeds.

If it looks like I will be needing more seed to go around I will go with the next highest votes.

Purple Peroutte with 38 votes
[IMG][/IMG]

Double Maddness mix with 36 votes
[IMG][/IMG]

Coral Morn with 37 votes

Opps made a mistake~Frillytunia came in at 34 votes, so I just got them also~


Burgundy Frost with 33

Hi everybody, hope you are having a wonderful holiday~

I am closing down registration to the grow out as I have all my seeds and am splitting them up between us.

You will each get~

Frillytunia~5 seeds

Dbl purple priouette~5 seeds

Dbl Maddness mix~2 seeds

Coral morn~~3 seeds

Burgundy frost ~ 3 seeds

So make sure you have room enough to handle 18 plants and remember you can always cut them back and root the cuttings, or just throw the cuttings out if you don't have room for them.

Once they get going they will get as large as you let them get. I think I repotted mine up to larger pots three times before I put them outside.

Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you had super holidays!

Well now that January is here we will soon be starting our grow out~

I will need everyone to contact me, either private message me here (just click on my screename at the top of my post and a small screen will come up~one choice is to send me a private message, click that and it will bring you to the message screen~this will let me know you are still a part of the group and I will give you my address there.

All you need to send is 2 stamps. Add a small note with your name, screename, address and that you are in the Petunia grow out.

I will get them back out to you ASAP

Next~This page or series of postings were just for sign ups. I will be starting a new page and everyone needs to move there for the actual grow out. as I will be putting instructions at the top of the page so anyone can find them.

See ya soon everyone!!

Hi everyone!!! I just posted the official grow out page with instruction here~
2017 Petunia grow out

Everyone needs to post a hello to the rest of the group on that page so that I know you have the link.

I have still not heard from everyone in the group~I have seeds going out in tomorrow mail and in about 5 days I will plant my seeds and post. After that we can all start.

It is ok, if people get a late start, however if I don't hear from the other participants in like two weeks (or the 23rd of this month) I will put their seeds up for anyone else who would like to join in.

Can't wait to get these babies going!!
