I decided last year to purchase only wave petunias for this summer as deadheading other plants was murder on my back as I have a very bad case of arthritis. I was in a hurry at the nursery and when I returned home I found out that I had also purchased surfinia and supertunia as well as waves. My question: Do I need to deadhead the supertunia and the surfinia? Thank you! Sincerely, Connie

Petunias come in all different sizes, colours veining patterns and edges - Sufinia (regular size plant/flowers)and supertunia (small plant/flowers)and waves are just a few of the available trailing petunias - I had the surfinia last year and they out performed the waves I had previously - and recommended by two nursuries too! You don't have to dead head any trailing petunias - they take care of themselves, which makes them such easy to care for plants! When shopping for petunias now, one has to carefully look at the plant tags to ensure we know what we are purchasing! There is a wonderful article on petunias - and all the kinds available - in this month's Martha Stewart magazine. Does anyone know where to get avalanch petunias in Halifax area?
