The Q&A Archives: Petunia Care

Question: My petunias are still blooming very well but are getting long and scragly. I hate to cut them back when they are blooming so prettily. What should I do?

Answer: You can keep your petunias looking their best by deadheading. Simply pinch off the dead blooms plus part of the stem. Doing this regularly will keep the plants looking neat and will also encourage the plant to develop new flowers.
