Default Petunia flowers have Botrytis

Noticed spots on the flowers,looked it up and found pictures of what it is, white spots all over the red blooms.Is there a household item I can treat this with?I gave it a weak fertilizer of Miracle Grow for flowers.Our daughter gave my wife a hanging basket of petunias and I noticed this right away.At first I thought it was old flowers and dead headed the plant but now all the flowers are getting it a day or two after flowering.

they will be okay. when we have a few cool nights the moisture on the flowers gives growth to the ruined blossoms. just go over the WHOLE basket and pinch off each and every flower and in atwo or three days you will never know it had it.

Personally, if you have tomatoes, I would get rid of it ASAP
