^ Identifying annuals ^ Working with bedding plans ^ Selecting and purchasing annuals ^ Planting and caring for annuals ^ Getting rid of pests for sheer flower power, annuals are hard to beat. Because they have to complete their entire life cycle in one growing season — which is the technical definition of the term annual — these plants work fast. They go from seed or seedling to full-grown plant, bursting with flowers, in short order, delivering color when and where you need it.
This chapter can help you choose and place annuals in your garden. It also fills you in on their basic care requirements so you can get the most out of them. Gardening with annuals, more than ever, is easy and rewarding.
