Can I grow Petunia surfinia in a tub, and if so, what is the best way to look after them



Yes,Haian..they are ideal for tubs or hanging baskets..being a trailing variety..They tolerate rain ,wind and sun of course..better than ordinary need to dead head either,they are self dead headers...they spread out well,so you don't need many to a pot,or could also have something upright in the centre,and have these round the edges? good luck,and welcome to Goy...

Agree with Bloomer's answer, except to say that surfinia petunias get quite long (mine get over a foot, sometimes 2 feet long) so unless your tub is quite a tall one, they may well be trailing on the ground by end of summer. Very good in hanging baskets though...
