The Q&A Archives: Watering and care of petunias

Question: How often and long should I water petunias? What is making the lower leaves yellow and plant shrivels?

Answer: Richard,

Water as needed to maintain moderate soil moisture, not soggy wet. The yellowing of lower leaves may be due to soggy soil, dry soil or lack of nitrogen. Fertilize with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro and see if this helps.
