The Q&A Archives: When/why do I pinch back petunias

Question: I love the long lived color from my petunias, but I've never understood why or when they must be pinched or cut back. Can I just prune them or go over them with my mower? Maybe if I knew why this is done, I'll have a better appreciation for the hard work.
Thank you!
