I love petunias!

So I jumped at the chance to test trial this Easy Wave Petunia Collection from Harris Seeds . As a member of Garden Writers of America I get to preview some wonderful varieties of flowers and veggies from time to time and I want to share those finds with you!

Wave Petunias have been around for a while but there are always exciting new colors and varieties add each season. This round I got to try Easy Violet Wave and Coral Reef. Aren’t the colors gorgeous?

Like all wave petunias, these new varieties are hardy and easy to care for in planters or planted directly in the ground. Petunias can tolerate light shade but should be planted where they’ll get at least 6 hours of full sun.
Remember to water containers often and feed your new beauties weekly with a light liquid fertilizer. Deadheading will help new blooms reach their fullest potential.
These Easy Waves will reward you with beautiful flowers all season long. Look for these varieties and more brilliant Waves this December in Harris Seeds 2014 Catalog!

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
