How do you get petunias to grow big and healthy, not leggy looking?

You have to clip back the dead flowers. It is called deadheading. You can trim back the longer shoots and shape the plants. They recover quickly.
They like a fair amount of direct sunshine and in lower light, that will speed up the legginess!!
