Annuals

Annuals

Annuals are plants that grow, flower, set seed and die in a single growing season. In a cold climate like ours, the term is also often applied to "tender" perennials which aren't sufficiently hardy to winter over in the garden.

The great value of annuals is their versatility in the garden. They are useful for creating large scale beddings of a single variety, mixing and matching in summer containers, and interplanting into mixed beds alongside perennials and shrubs. As a general rule, annuals come on later than bulbs, perennials, and shrubs, and many varieties flower all summer long with little care.

We particularly enjoy combining annuals in containers, which is the easiest possible way to add color to a patio or doorstep, and an opportunity to experiment with different forms and textures. We're pleased to offer a number of collections that we've had success with, and encourage you to mix and match on your own. You'll quickly find lots of ways in which annuals can give your garden a welcome boost.
