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.
