I plant Calibrachoa every year with amazing success, so I was ecstatic to find that they were available online during the pandemic while my local garden center was closed. The shipping from Romence was great and the plants arrived when expected. I planted them in large, clean pots with fresh Pro-Mix along with "Blue Frost" Salvia. They were watered daily with drip irrigation and fertilized weekly with Jack's Blossom Booster. They were beautiful and prolific throughout the hot days of summer. I especially loved the dark purple throat of these "Blue Moon Punch."

Homeowner Growing Tips:
Calibrachoa do best in well drained soil. They prefer containers or raised beds. If the roots are kept too wet it can lead to root disease. Once they are established allow the top of the soil to slightly dry before watering again.
Fertilize them regularly. Look for something with an N-P-K ratio near 20-10-20 such as the Proven Winners water soluble fertilizer. This will help keep the foliage nice and green.
Calibrachoa respond very well to trimming. During the season if they begin to look a little leggy simply take a sharp scissors and trim them back to taste. This will promote increased branching resulting in thicker, fuller looking plants with more blooms.

I love these flowers because they bloom all summer and are rather heat tolerant. They added much beauty to my hanging basket and floral arrangement I did on a large pot on our porch. Will definitely buy these beauties again.
