Hi, does anyone know approx. how many days it takes for Petunias to grow to maturity? Also, what is the Germination/Survival rate? Thanks!

Personally, Hannah, I don't grow many flowers from seeds anymore frown , but when I worked at my friend's greenhouse the Petunias we planted reached maturity in about 3 months. thumbup They took anywhere from 7-21 days to germinate and the survival rate was very good, wink so we had plenty of hanging baskets and planters ready for Mother's Day. smile

You're welcome, Hannah! smile What color are you planting? Duh Actually, I had thought about trying to plant some Wave Petunia seeds this year, but I have so much on my plate right now, I didn't think it was such a good idea. frown Maybe next year! wink wink

They are pink, and are called, I think, Laura Bush Petunias. I had some of the wave petunias last year and they were very nice.

If you look at propagation subject - you will see that petunias germination/survival rate is too good! I had to clip out MANY little guys!
