Starting Petunias - Blue and Strawberry Daddy variety.

I planted a tray of petunias today.   It was 88 today and I have the planting bug!  I planted half the tray with blue daddy and the other half with strawberry daddy.  I purchased pelleted seed which is easier to handle than the very tiny petunia seeds.   A breeze will blow all of your petunia seeds away before you know it.   I planted one or two pellet in each spot.  They will sprout in 5-10 days.    The daddy series are a upright petunia with darker veins which make a pretty blossom.
