PLANTING YOUR UPRIGHT CONTAINER
- You’ll need a total of three 4-inch containers to fill one 12-16” container. You could plant a single container of all Supertunia Mini Vista Pink Star petunias or plant a combination container using one or two vigorous companions.
- Space the plants equally in a triangular pattern in the container so it fills out on all sides.
- Use a good quality potting soil in your container. Better potting soils are light in texture and weight, and water drains easily through them.
- Mix a bit of slow release plant food into the potting soil before you add the plants. Follow the package instructions to know how much to use. This will ensure a small amount of food is available to the plants’ roots over the season.
- Water your newly planted container immediately to help the soil settle in around the plants’ roots.
