Grows to Amazing Lengths
The Surfinia Revolution! ®
"Plant them and stand back!" — Allan M. Armitage The first spreading Petunia ever grown was Surfinia®, and it remains the best of the cutting-grown varieties, with a near monopoly on the Petunia market in Europe! Bred from wild Petunias crossed with cultivated seed varieties, the Surfinia® Petunias are sold only as plants — never as seed — to ensure the strongest, most vigorous and free-flowering growth over a long season. These plants spread up to 8 feet within a single season, creating a pillar of living color. And they’re great for warm climates where many varieties struggle, offering a late-season surge of blooms that no other Petunia can match! One plant easily fills a hanging basket, while six plants will blanket 20 square feet of garden beds.
Surfinia® Deep Red
The Unique Advantages of Surfinia® Petunias
• Big, easy-to-grow plants that take off from the very first day you transplant them • Quick-growing and so vigorous they can spread 8 feet in a single season • Super-floriferous, thanks to the shorter space between buds on every branch • Longer-blooming, with the heaviest show in late season, when many other Petunias wind down • Far more heat tolerant than other Petunias, flowering right through the hottest summer weather • Super-colorful, with rich, intense shades hard to find elsewhere

Petunias of Every Shade
Petunia Black Velvet PPAF. 'Balpevac.' It took 4 years of breeding, and was worth every day of it! The only black Petunia in the world has now arrived, and is already sweeping up awards and winning hearts. This upright, mounded plant is very compact and tight at just 8 to 12 inches high and wide, covering itself from early summer until frost with big, sweet-scented charcoal-black blooms. The perfect combination planting with white, red, yellow, and orange flowers, it is just as easy to grow and tirelessly blooming as other Petunias. You must try Black Velvet this season and admire its inky-dark color up close! 87640-PK-6—Each tray contains 6 plants 1 tray $16.95 | 3 trays $15.95 ea | 6 trays $14.95 ea

PPAF. 'Balpephan.' When this blindingly bright cream-and-black striped wonder won the 2010 Fleuroselect Award, the 28 judges agreed that its main merit was "the wow factor."

Great for formal plantings, it "dresses down" beautifully for informal settings, too.

Space the plants close together for a tight screen of solid color, or farther apart for a mounding groundcover.

You Can Double Your Crops
and more of it! Tomato Graft
Hig set lig sw
In the photo above, the grafted plant has been pruned to 2 main shoots, making it easy to train up the trellis and harvest.
Why Grafted Tomatoes are Better:
• More fruit in less space • Vigorous growth
• Larger, more flavorful fruit • Fewer pest and disease problems
Grafted Tomatoes are simply easier to grow, more productive, and have fewer problems with pests and diseases than any others. Here's how they work: The Best of Both Worlds The top part of one plant is attached to the root system of another, more vigorous variety. As they grow, their tissues fuse, giving you the robust health of the rootstock combined with the delicious fruit of the variety you have chosen.
Reliable and Easy to Grow Feed and water your grafted tomatoes as you would any others, but prune off any shoots that grow out below the graft. This will improve air circulation and actually increase your yields! Support these vining plants as you would any other tomato!
