Petunia patagonica
« on: January 13, 2018, 04:09:19 AM »
I managed to score six seeds of this rarity from the AGS seed ex.  Anyone have any suggestions how to germinate it?  My gut tells me to try half in my alpine house and half inside in warm.  Every other petunia germinates in warm conditions so maybe this one will too?

Martin Sheader  may be your best advisor for this species, Jan.   Hope he sees this!

It was in the seeds collected in gardens section, so let's hope the person
who donated it will respond.
