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.

Growing A Flowering Shade Garden

By Felix on November 29th, 2008

The general idea that exposure to the sun is something that all plants need has made many gardeners hesitant to start a garden in places that are shady or partially hidden from the sun. Many think it is not worth the effort to start a flowering shade garden since the plants will only eventually die out from lack exposure to the sun.

However, this is not entirely true as plants can still live even though it is shaded partially or fully from the sun. In fact, certain plants grow best if they are planted in these areas. They bloom and flower all they can without the fear of drying up from the excessive heat. This produces a shady flowering garden that is not only beautiful but is also cool and refreshing to visit at any time of the day.
