Controlling common problems with annuals

By Felix on March 26th, 2009

Now that Spring is here, or let’s say that it should be here (we had a little snowstorm yesterday and are expecting two more this week) I wanna share some thoughts about how to control common problems with annuals. As you have already figured out, I love annuals. Just have a look at the white Easter Lily which should be blossoming somewhere around you. Isn’t nature incredible?

Annuals are among the most varied, most beautiful and most colorful flowers to design your garden with.  The sheer variety of annuals, the many colors, shapes and textures they come in, has made them a favorite among gardeners for many years.

With so many different annuals on the market, their ability to resist common plant diseases and insect infestations can vary quite a bit.  While some types of annuals are virtually impervious to disease and insects, others require much more care to remain trouble free.  When choosing varieties of annuals, it is always best to choose disease and insect resistant varieties when ever you can.  Doing so will allow you to use less pesticides, and they will generally be less trouble in the long run as well.
