It seems like “heavenly blue” turned all into “purple” (I think “Magenta” would be a better name though...). So much for the color combination I had in my mind😂. #petunia #surfinia

Beautiful flowers 🥰 Have you grown them from seeds?

@kaporyash Thanks😊 Nope, I planted the seedlings in May. Petunias are treated as annual in Japan.

I cut back my petunias so hard✂️✂️✂️ All the bloom was looking sad after the pouring rain and they got mealybugs on, so I think it was the time. Also I fed them with insecticides. Fingers crossed for them to come back blooming🤞 #petunia #surfinia #cutting #mealybug

All the try & error was worth it! This year, petunias are doing great👍 Now it’s pouring rain outside and blooms might be damaged😱😱😱☔️ Oh well, maybe it’s time to cut them back anyway. #surfinia #petunia

This is more like notes to myself✍️ I have been struggling to grow petunias over years, and making changes in order for them to strive on my balcony. Hopefully, this year won’t be my last attempt. #goodluck #petunias
