Capella™ Salmon Petunia Plant Care Instructions: For optimal performance, keep your plants well-watered. Choose containers with functioning drain holes as petunias will not tolerate wet feet. Deadhead weekly. PRO TIP: Remove both the spent flower and its stem, snipping it back to where it connects with the main stem. Otherwise, the seed head will develop, and the plant will think it should slow down its flower production. Trimming will help keep your petunias looking fresh all season long.

Here are our favorite methods:

  1. Trim a third of the plant back by a third, this should be done every other week, cycling through the three areas.
  2. Find the longest stems that only have one flower and trim them to the main stem, this method should be done weekly.
  3. The most drastic approach would be to trim back the complete plant by 1/3 every 6 weeks.
