My wife and I love growing flowers, but we’re always struggling to figure out what types of seeds to plant. It’s not that we don’t like perennials, annuals or biennials—we just have no idea which ones are right for our gardens. We’ve tried several different types over the years with mixed results, which is why we decided to ask some experts for their advice on choosing which type of flower seeds are best for your garden. Here’s what they had to say:
Perennial flowers are plants that come back every year, but you have to plant them for a few years before they start to bloom. Perennials can be more expensive than annuals, but they’re also generally easier to grow and care for because you don’t have to keep replanting them every year. They stay in one spot for many years, so once you find the right spot for your perennial flower garden, it’s like having an investment that will pay off over time.
If you want more plants from your perennials after some time has passed, just divide them into smaller groups or cuttings and replant those parts elsewhere in your yard!
These are the flowering plants that live for only one year and die after one growing season. The most common annual flower is the Sunflower, which blooms in the summer months. Other popular annuals include marigolds, dahlias and petunias, which all bloom in various seasons throughout the year (spring through fall).
Biennials are plants that take two years to complete their life cycle. They grow and bloom in their first year, then they die back to the ground in the second year and resume growing again when spring comes around.
If you don’t have time to care for your garden during the winter, biennials are a great choice because they won’t need any care after blooming until it is time for them to go dormant and return again next season.
They also work well if you want color all season long!
You can expand your flower garden every year with annuals, perennials and biennials without worrying about where to plant them.
If you want to expand your flower garden every year, annuals are a great choice. You can plant them in the spring or summer and enjoy their colorful blooms all season long. When fall rolls around, they will wither away on their own—you won’t have to worry about planting again next year!
If you don’t want to worry about planting the same type of flower every year like most perennials and biennials do, annuals are also a good choice for those who have a smaller space in their yards. Annuals grow and bloom during one growing season only; however, they come back every few weeks so they are always adding something beautiful to your yard even if it isn’t always flowers at once!
Annuals grow and bloom in one growing season.
An annual is simply a plant that grows and blooms in one growing season. The seeds are usually sown once, and the plant will die after its flowering process is complete. This means that you won’t have to worry about replanting the same flower every year—you can simply buy new seeds for them to grow again next year!
Annuals are great for people who don’t want to deal with the hassle of planting flowers every spring because they’re low maintenance and don’t require much care. Sometimes it’s ideal not having to worry about replanting each year, especially if you don’t have space or time!
Annual flowers are a good choice if you don’t want to worry about planting the same type of flower every year.
One of the biggest benefits of annual flowers is that you can plant them and forget about them until next year. While many perennials require regular watering, these flowers will die off in autumn or winter and need to be replanted the following spring.
Annuals are a great choice if you don’t want to worry about planting the same type of flower every year, but still want to enjoy colorful blooms during their growing season.
Annual flowers are a good choice if you don’t have time to care for your garden during the winter.
Annual flowers are a good choice if you don’t have time to care for your garden during the winter. They can be planted in the spring and will bloom in the summer and fall.
Annuals are also easy to grow, maintain and remove after they bloom.
Perennial flowers come back again and again.
Perennial flowers come back again and again. They’re a good choice if you don’t want to plant new flowers every year, or if you want to expand your garden over time.
If you’re looking for a flower that will give you color for several years, perennial flowers are the way to go. Perennial plants come back each year without having to be replanted by hand, which means no more digging up seedlings and trying not to accidentally kill them while transferring them outdoors! Instead of starting from scratch every spring with annuals, perennials give year-round beauty with minimal maintenance (and they won’t die in winter).
Biennial flowers need two growing seasons to finish their life cycle.
Biennial flowers are plants that grow from seed, flower and produce seeds during the same year. They require two growing seasons to finish their life cycle.
Biennials bloom in the spring and then die back in the heat of summer to rest until next spring when they re-appear with fresh new growth. They will continue to grow throughout their second season and then die after flowering again in fall or early winter. There are basically three types of biennials: hardy, tender and half-hardy biennials. Hardy biennial flowers include dahlias, snapdragons (antirrhinums) snapdragons (anaphylaxis), foxgloves (digitalis), hardy geraniums (pelargonium), peonies, sweet rocket (hieracium umbellatum) and wild pinks (Dianthus barbatus). Tender biennial flowers include marigolds, pansies (“Viola tricolor”), sweet rocket (“Hieracium umbellatum”), violas (“Viola”?). Half-hardy biennial flowers include wallflowers (“Cheiranthus cheiri”)
If you’re starting a flower garden for the first time, it’s important to know all your options before choosing flower seeds for your new beds.
When you’re growing a new flower garden, it’s important to know all your options before choosing flower seeds for your new beds. This way you can decide what will grow best in your space and climate. Here are some questions to ask yourself when deciding what type of flowers you want to grow:
- What do I want to grow?
- What do I have available?
- How much space do I have?
- What is my climate like?
- What type of soil do I have?
And finally, ask yourself these questions about budget: How much money can be put into this project? Is there enough money from other places where the cost could come from (i.e., donations)?
