“VELVET F1” SERIES
The “Velvet F1” series of varieties are 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 throughout the entire
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
