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.
