Allison,

Losers are ones with poor germination or you do not like the plant? I seeded Flambe Salmon as well and it has germinated, but the seedlings are very tiny in comparison to other petunias. I did seed a mix of Divine Impatiens & they all germinated (used blue plastic over the dome for germination).

Allison, I am having trouble with Petunia Salmon Velvet also. Wonder if it was the clay they used to cover the seeds? If you remember mine was from the same sale.

I tried the salmon velvet last year and seemed to remember that there was about 1/3 that didn't germinate. I didn't buy those seeds this year. I much prefer the Waves for amount of flowers and drape over the velvet series

I can't recall right now where they F1's? Maybe they are not strong enough and that series will eventually phase out.

I really liked these F1 Limonchello and started them again this year. I thought they were awesome with Opera Supreme Pink Morn

I'm excited now--I have seeds for the limoncello. Those photos are gorgeous! Love the combination with the pink.....may have to search out something interesting to go with these.
