General Information: Well branched compact plants with a neat basket hugging habit, produce highly colourful ‘mini rose’ double blooms.
‘Sunrise’ has sunshiny yellow petals with orange/red veining bringing a splash of colour to hanging baskets and containers.
Calibrachoa flowers are just like petunia flowers but on a dainty scale and with the added bonus that they do not need dead heading.
(Calibrachoa were formerly known as Million Bells, because of their hundreds of tiny bell-shaped flowers).
CARE TIPs: Deadhead to prolong the flowering period. These will work well in a container pot in a sunny position. Water well in the first two weeks, to prevent the plant from drying out. Apply liquid fertiliser fortnightly to improve performance.
FLOWERING July - October
HARVESTING Flower production 4 months
When plug plants arrive transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost and grow on at a minimum temperature of 15C (59F).
When plants are well grown, transplant into baskets and containers. If the plant is suited for growing outdoors when all risk of frost has passed gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before positioning baskets outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun once all frost risk has passed.
Suitable for the vegetable garden, allotments and containers.
Be prepared to water well and supplement feed with high-potash feed during season. Regular feeding is recommended.
