Another tip: cultivating or turning the soil when weeds are small is a tried and true agricultural practice for vegetable farmers.

Both varieties feature deep colors and continuous flowering and are great for baskets and containers. Also, take a look at the petunia "Pretty Much Picasso", with a violet purple flower edged in lime green.
