How many surfinia in a tub?

This year I've decided to plant up my terracotta tubs and hanging baskets with surfinia petunias. I know these grow very vigorously and turn into huge plants. Can anyone offer any advice on how many to plant in a 10 inch diameter container, or similar size hanging basket?

    I would plant 3. Odd numbers look better and 1 isn't enough. I think 5 would be overcrowded, but others may differ.

    I have not yet put my bedding plants in their pots.  The daffodil pots are hiding in borders . I am hoping B& Q will have some good coloured surfinas this year. The veined ones are my favourites.

    Busy-Lizzie is right 3 should be enough for a 10" basket. I did see this number mentioned for a 12" basket on the Thompson and Morgan website but cant find it now.
    Bit like their delivery's - gone missing!

    3 will look fab and look spectacular, especially if all the same colour.
