My Easy Wave Petunias all in Hanging Baskets have done exremely well but are now starting to get leggy & a bit empty looking in the centre.
Can I cut them back all round the pot to get them bushy again & how much should I cut off. ?
I live on the southern end of Vancouver Island.
All suggestions appreciated. Thank you.

I usually cut petunias back about half way in the middle of the season. They just get too leggy if you don't. They recover very quickly and will be blooming again in a couple of weeks.

Does this strategy work for callibrochoa as well?
