I have 2 wonderful pots filled with purple and white petunias. They are growing rapidly and over taking the small shrub I planted in the middle, which I dont miond for now as they look amazing. Whilst I can prun back now – how do I prepare them at the end of the summer when flowering has ceased for the winter? Do i cut back to the base?

Petunias are summer bedding flowers and will be killed by frost outdoors and not flower again.

You can however take cuttings of petunias in August from shoots that have not flowered and keep the young plants indoors over wnter until the end of May next.
