Some people get a bit snobby when it comes to flowers. Perennials usually come high in the pecking order for the 'must have' plants of the moment, but when did you last hear anyone singing the praises of hardy annuals?Annuals are the unsung heroes
This is probably a stupid question! I sowed some hardy annuals two weeks ago and the wildflower Small Scabious has germinated. What happens to hardy annuals during winter, do they die down to come back up again in the Spring or will I lose them
, especially during the high-risk hardy annual season.I love sowing seeds and still get a thrill at what can be achieved from just a few packets. Any packet labelled 'hardy annual' (or the abbreviation, 'HA') will do the trick, and there's no need for seed
proud in their tray waiting to be potted on. As I post this comment my computer is next to a deep windowsill (no greenhouse unfortunately) crammed with hardy annuals in little cell trays growing by the hour!Can't wait to see them all in the wonderful
An annual plant, the seeds of which can tolerate sub-zero winter temperatures and whose seedlings can survive spring frosts.
Hi everyone, Got several cornflowers and corncockles that have been potted on once and now are becoming large plants. They live outside on the table. I don't really want to pot on again as I'm running out of space and I could do with their little pots............I'm thinking it'...
will be worth it in the end when we have gardens flowing with colour and wonderful growth. Oh what fun!! If I prevent my hard annuals from seeding, the flowering time last longer? But I wont have pretty flowers the following year? I bought some lupins
To anyone that could help I have brought flowering seeds today and I'm just getting confused with what comes back what doesn't please could some kind gardener tell me so I can write it down.starting with hardy perennial,half hardy annual,half hardy
and biennials. Summer bedding plants include hardy and half-hardy annuals, tender perennials and summer-flowering bulbs.
I was given some of these late in the season and they're obviously not going to get to flowering before the frosts. Are they annuals or tender/half hardy perennials? If I dig one up and bring it into a cold greenhouse might it survive long enough
