This is a guide about growing a cardinal vine. Cardinal vines are easy to grow annuals that produce brilliant red flowers.
I am trying to do something different with all of the annuals in my front garden, as when we go away, they die out. A gardener told me, she puts annuals in a pot and places the pots in the ground. This eliminates border planting and there is just a section where you the annuals are. I hope I am making myself clear.
Which works better on my inside grown sunflower seeds, Epsom salt or coffee?
I have a coleus that is huge. It is so big that the branches are breaking off from the weight of the branches and foliage. The funny thing is, these large branches, while still attached to the main stem, are growing roots and wrapping those roots around the main stem.
Is there a list of warm season and cool season annuals?
I would like some suggestions for annuals I can put with Profusion zinnias. They are heat tolerant and don't take much water. I have a tendency to plant the wrong kind of flowers together. Some need more water then others, so I would like to know what to plant with the Profusion series. These will go in my flower boxes on the south side. They get full sun. Thanks!
Before the first frost sets in, take cuttings from annuals like coleus, begonias, fuchsias, and impatients. Remove any buds, then dip the ends in rooting compound, and plant the cuttings in a mixture of vermiculite and peat moss.
I have spent a bunch of money on annuals for my new window boxes this year. I used red vining geraniums, white petunias and asparagus fern.
I purchased some beautiful annual asters at a local garden center and planted them a few weeks ago. They are not doing very well - they just look droopy and sad and it looks like something has been eating the leaves (bug, I think - I don't have many rabbits around here and it doesn't look like rabbit damage.)
Please give me some hints or tips on if I did this right. I heard an idea long ago that I could plant some annuals in a bag of top soil. I put these bags where I don't have any flower beds. I bought impatiens and made an "X" for each flower, added some Osmocote and watered.
The color washes off the bright pink annual vinca I planted when I water it. I've never had that happen with a plant before. Does this happen with all the brightly colored vincas? The light pink ones I have look great.
Does anyone have some general tips for growing annuals? I want to plant from seed. Should I start the seeds and grow seedlings first or just plop the seeds in the ground?
I save all of my plant tags and information about where I bought them so that I can purchase the best producing annuals again from the same merchant for the following spring.
Snip your annuals off just at the bottom of the stem and put new soil and mulch around them right before the first frost.
