cutting back petunias
My petunias are starting to get leggy and the blooms are getting smaller. If I cut them back to the big leaves will they start to bloom again?

Petunias only require the lightest deadheading to bloom again, especaily modern cultivars that are "self-cleaning," meaning the old blooms shrivel up and fall off, allowing new ones to come through. Pinch off any dried flowers, fertilize and water, and your petunias will bloom again. Your blooms are probably small because the plant needs fertilizer.
