Hi all,

I am wondering if my Calibrachoa or the trailing petunia container plant has stopped flowering only because it's autumn here , or because it's not receiving enough sunshine or its dying. The bottom is all brown but I thought that's because of the bush. It bloomed all summer and I trimmed the dead flowers back a bit for new growth. Please advice.

Calibrachoa can be fussy about the length of day and temperature, and it varies depending on cultivar. The more modern ones are supposed to be less fussy but I've found how well they do is still very cultivar dependent. I would give them another couple of weeks or so to see if flower buds appear. I don't live in a climate where they have any chance of lasting much into autumn so I don't have any experience with them other than as summer annuals.
