Petunia Growing Tips Spread a 2- or 3-inch layer of some organic material to mulch the soil around petunia plants. Use chopped leaves, dried grass clippings, wood chips or shredded bark products. Organic mulch suppresses weeds, keeps the soil cool and moist by blocking evaporation from its surface and improves its texture as it gradually decomposes. Remove the spent flowers from petunias in containers as they fade. By midsummer when the plants begin to get leggy and the spindly, stems produce fewer and smaller flowers. Cut each stem back by half to revitalize the petunia plant. After a pause, they will resume flowering with gusto.
