Early Winter in N.E. Downunder - Petunia 'Shock Wave Pink Ice'

I like these hybrids. They tend to live a long time and bloom all year.

I have one similar which is called Tidal Wave.

Yes I'm a fan of the 'wave' hybrids too. I love my Petunias but so many of them seem to be rather fussy in the conditions out in my courtyard. These, however, do very well and as you say, flower for ages and ages.

Yes, the 'Wave' hybrids are very floriferous! Petunias are very easy to grow as long as they get lots of sun.

This is one I posted a couple of weeks ago:

Lovely Andy. I just have to have my Petunias during our winter and spring and I think I might just get some more now.

Petunias are very easy to start from cutting...just put the cutting directly into soil and they strike very quickly!

The one I posted is from a cutting my dad started for me.

Thanks, Andy, I'll give it a go. I've never taken cuttings of Petunias before as I've always been happy enough to try new varieties each year. The two I've got now are definitely keepers though, so it's worth a try.

Cutting-grown plants can save you money. lol! :>)
