Petunias 101

Many people wonder what exactly the difference between all the different types of Petunias we grow is.  While all Petunias grow well in warm sunny locations, there are different growing and flowering habits and maintenance requirements. 

Petunias that we sell in bedding packs are grown from seed and are the traditional, large flowering varieties that most people are familiar with.  There is also a smaller seed-grown, flowering version with a mounding growth habit known as the Picobella series.

All Petunias grown from seed benefit from deadheading (manual removal by pinching the full spent flowers) through the season.
Sanguna Deep Lavender Vein, Lipstick & Mango Punch
The vigorous, super trailing Petunias such as the Cascadia, Sanguna and Headliner series are grown from propagation- taking cuttings off of a 'Mother' plant and rooting them. 

These varieties are prolific bloomers with an incredible trailing-spreading growth habit, making them perfect for hanging baskets, window boxes and ground covers in larger flower beds.  The blooms keep on coming and there is no need to deadhead as the new blooms continue to take over the spent ones.  These varieties are continually being improved and cross bred to create new and exciting flower combinations and are also self branching, creating a plethora of stems to hold an abundance of flowers.

Potunia, Crazytunia and Amore series is a mounding type of Petunias of which we have a large selection of. These varieties have been bred to grow in a tighter mounding habit, making them perfect for container or smaller flower bed plantings.  These also are naturally branching and do not require any deadheading.

Edible Crops Everywhere

Another shipment of Seed Potatoes from Van Noort has arrived with plenty of favourites to choose from, including Yukon Gold, Norland and Chieftain- an improved Red Pontiac that is scab resistant.  The Grow Your Own Mushroom Kits and Local Asparagus roots from Bellmann Farms in Armstrong have been restocked.
We continue to open up more aisles and now the early plantings of Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers and Squash are accessible.  Please remember that even though we have many plantings available, not everything is ready to be planted out in this cooler weather.
