By the time hard frost comes in fall, this plant will have showered your garden with thousands of blooms. The petite flowers grace cascading plants that are great in combinations, mono-hanging baskets and in raised beds with great drainage.
Calibrachoa need good drainage to perform well so they are best grown in containers of all kinds. Hanging baskets, window boxes and upright containers are all great for use with Superbells®. If you happen to have great drainage in your landscape beds or utilize raised beds, then Calibrachoa will do find when planted in the landscape. However, most of us will have better luck when using containers.
When planting Calibrachoa I often give the plants a slight trim, using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears. While not a necessary step, it will increase branching and may help your plants look even fuller.
Calibrachoa are usually easiest to grow in containers because if the roots are kept too wet can lead to root rot diseases. In containers, allow the top of the soil to dry before watering again. If your plant is wilting even though the soil is still damp you likely have a root rot problem. Calibrachoa can be fantastic in-ground plants, but only if they are planted in well drained soil. Raised beds would be a good choice for planting Calibrachoa in the landscape. In the ground they shouldn't need much additional water unless conditions are very dry. Proper watering is key to growing good Calibrachoa.
