Good afternoon diggers, Ive had a remarkable show of bought trailling surfina this year. They are starting to go over now and setting seed. Can I get the same show next year from seed I collect. Thanks in advance

    Surfinias are either sterile or don't come true from seed. If they are trailing petunias you may be able to grow them from seed. Surfinias are propagated from cuttings. That's why they are more expensive than petunias to buy.

    There’s a good thread here about taking cuttings of sterile petunias.
