Melinda Myers offers advice for the care of fall annuals.
Some like it hot! Set the stage for some drama this spring with the lush beauty found in the rich floral hues of Strawberry Red, Pink Yarrow, Orange Flame and Kale Green--a few of the trending colors for 2017. Simply, keep these low maintenance plants watered as directed and fertilized to keep them blooming from spring to frost.
Brighten up your landscape with the season-long blooms of calibrachoas. You may know these miniature petunia-like plants as Million Bells® and Superbells®. They are a cousin of the petunia that pack lots of beauty with very little maintenance. *Arriving in stores late May
Don’t worry, be happy…. wise words for many situations but especially for a new gardener. This spring, there is no need to stress about plant choices, colors, sun or shade. I chose hardworking plants that are born to bloom from spring to frost—with little care from the gardener’s hand. Although these hardy annuals are extremely low-maintenance, you will have to water them once in awhile—but, I guess that’s why they call it gardening.
