Velvet F1 group varieties are intended especially for planting
in containers such as flower boxes, hanging bowls 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 Velvet F1 varieties can also be planted in flower beds where
they grow together in a short time and create a flower carpet
Excellent health, exuberant growth, blossoms of medium size and
high seed germination are great advantages of these varieties.
The price of delivered seeds is also interesting. 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.
