“VELVET F1” SERIES
The “Velvet F1” series of varieties intended especially for planting
in containers such as flower boxes, hanging baskets or raised
containers to emphasise their overhanging character. They create
a massive cascade and bloom during the whole season. If cultivated
correctly, they bloom on the whole surface of the plant. Thanks
to the length of their overhanging shoots reaching 80–100 cm,
the varieties of the “Velvet F1” group can compete with varieties
grown from cuttings. All “The Velvet F1” varieties can also be
planted in flower beds where they grow together over a short
period of time and create a flower carpet about 25 cm high. Excellent
health, exuberant growth, blossoms of medium size and high seed
germination are the great advantages of these varieties. Prices
of seeds delivered are also attractive. The method of cultivation
does not differ from other petunia groups. Plants have a creeping
character from the very beginning. Proper nutrition has a positive
influence on the length of the spreading cascade.
