|My petunias are leggy and straggily. I have cut some back but I dare not cut them all because I won't have a flower left. Any suggestions? Thanks

|You can cut back your straggly petunias hard to promote a new flush of bloom. You may be without flowers for a week or two, but you'll be rewarded with a better-looking, more vigorous plant for the rest of the season. Give your plants a dose of a soluble fertilizer such as fish emulsion when you cut them back to help rejuvenate them.
