droopy petunias

Hi

My trailing petunias are looking a bit droopy. I was thinking of give them a Chelsea chop. Do you think that will revive them.

    Hi, Mark!

    Are your petunias just tired (with shoddy-looking flowers), or are the leaves wilting?

    In the first case, I'd cut all old stems; if the plants are fine, they will sprout back soon.

    In the second case, I´d throw them in the bin...

  • Thanks for that, I'll give them a trim

    Dead-heading and a dose of tomato fertiliser ought to perk them up image

    When dead head make sure you cut the seed head off not just pull the dead petals.

  • Thanks everyone,
