Answer: Petunias will grow and flower best if you pinch off the spent flowers, along with a few inches of stem. As you pinch, you're encouraging the plants to branch out and develop more flowers. If you allow the flowers to develop seeds, all of the plant's energy will go into making seeds rather than new flowering stems. Keeping the spent flowers pinched off will keep them blooming all season long. Best wishes with your garden!
