How to Grow Petunias from Seed: Sow Petunia seeds indoors 10 - 12 weeks before planting out. The flower seeds are extremely tiny, so press them gently onto the soil surface without covering, and keep the soil wet for the best germination. Five or six weeks after sowing the seeds, transplant the seedlings into 3 inch pots, and grow on in cooler temperatures with plenty of light. Harden young plants for 10 - 14 days before planting outdoors after last frost date, and pinch the young Petunia seedlings back to encourage branching at the time of planting out. The plants benefit from deadheading and a good shearing mid-season to help rejuvenate them.
