                                                                                                                                                               ANNUALS
In reviewing our catalog, you will find a line of information below each variety. We have listed the number of seeds per ounce, the best soil temperature
for germination, and germination time. When seeding by hand, sow seed in indented rows (in the "valleys"). Cover lightly if required. only to the thickness
of the seed. This will keep moisture levels high around the seed and avoid drying out.
Through our years of experience, we have added “grower tips” that we feel you will find useful. In evaluating the entire germination and growing process,
may we stress the importance of purchasing good seed, using sterilized media, and maintaining the proper soil temperature. All too often, ideal condi-
tions and soil temperature are completely defeated by the use of cold water on seed flats and seedlings. PLEASE avoid chilling the flats and checking
growth with the use of cold water.
In storing seeds – use a cool, dry place, never in areas of high humidity.

          Seed count ranges from 250,000 - 300,000 seeds per oz. For the best germination, maintain 70°-75° soil temperature. After sowing seeds, cover lightly
          with vermiculite, requires light to germinate.
          Petunias, Multiflora Double and Grandiflora Double must be sown earlier than singles in order to flower at the same time. Unlike singles, doubles prefer
          cool growing conditions, or they will lose their dwarf habit. Feed doubles heavier than singles in order to obtain quality double flowers.
          Very often, we receive comments from growers that uniformity of bicolor petunias will vary from year to year. The variation is not in the variety, but in the
          way in which they are handled under certain conditions. Please keep in mind that low fertilization, light watering, warm temperatures and high light inten-
          sity results in a predominance of white in bicolor varieties.
          Also, cool temperatures, heavy watering, poor light intensity and heavy feeding, will diminish the color white in your bicolor pattern. With this information,
          you can realize the affects and control them to some degree.
          Whenever we can be of assistance, never hesitate to call upon us.
