Many of our Wave Petunias are getting leggy and tired looking from all of the heat with lots of watering. Don’t be too quick to throw them out, try a good hair cut instead. You will be amazed at the results in just a few weeks.
Make sure that you cut back on your watering until you get new foliage, as the bald guys don’t use up the water near as fast. Do keep up with your once a week feeding and just water as needed and you should see a lot of new growth in less then a week.
As you can see the Superbenas and Geraniums are responding great as well.
The Dragon Wings Begonia are another basket that really does better with a light pruning as they are a fast grower. for those I like to just snip about 4 to 6 inches off of the tips. If you are careful you can do it without making it look too rough. It makes them get nice and bushy. Be careful about feeding the Dragon wings Begonia, as they get quite large.
Enjoy your flowers!
