  How to Choose and Maintain Annuals  
 

Annuals are a popular choice when it comes to a backyard garden or outdoor area. This is because they are easy to plant, straightforward to maintain and only last one season. For those who like to switch it up every season, planting a few annuals in the spring will ensure a bright and colorful summer.

Visiting the Nursery

Annuals can be planted anywhere and come in a variety of colors and types. All annuals will have a tag that will help you determine the condition of growth best suited for your annual. Annuals are great in flower beds, in potted plants, in rock gardens and anywhere else inside or outside the house. Furthermore, they are fairly inexpensive and can be purchased from any garden center.

Annuals will come in small plastic containers, usually in a set of four to six. It's best to choose annuals that are little baby plants that have not bloomed yet. Check the tags to see when they will bloom, what they need and what you can expect when you take your new little babies home from the nursery.

Taking your Annuals Home

When you get your annuals home, it is time to plant them. Many people will plant their annuals in potted gardens or in garden beds. A variety of annuals in a potted plant can really brighten up your outdoor area. If you are planting your annuals in a garden bed, it's best to add space between each one.

Make a daily routine of checking on your annuals and watering them three times a week or every day during those extra hot months. Add fertilizer to the water mixture two to four times a month. It's important to keep your annuals well watered throughout the summer and place them in their best-growing conditions. Some are made for the shade; some are made for the sun.

The End of the Season

All good things must come to an end and this is the case for annuals. Annuals are only meant to last for one season so once they have blossomed and are starting to look a little worse for wear, it's time to take them to the compost. The good thing about annuals is, next year, you can start the process all over again and choose a whole new set of beautiful flowers to highlight your yard.
