Gardening Tips & Tricks

While both are equally good in the garden, some prefer annuals over perennials. Here's what you need to know.

Annuals are often chosen for their vibrant, showy blooms that can add a  pop of seasonal color to a garden bed, border, or container. They bloom  continuously throughout the growing season, providing a consistent  display of flowers and foliage.

Annuals come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, offering  gardeners more choices for creating a specific look or theme in their  garden.

Because annuals need to be replanted each year, gardeners have the  flexibility to change the design and layout of their garden each season.  This can be especially appealing for those who enjoy experimenting with  new plants or who like to switch things up from year to year.

Many annuals are relatively easy to grow and maintain, making them a great choice for beginner gardeners or those with limited time and resources.

Annuals typically cost less making them an attractive option for gardeners on a budget.

Overall, annuals can be a great choice for gardeners who want to add  seasonal color and variety to their garden without committing to a  permanent planting scheme.
