Impact with Annuals...
With the days growing shorter and the shadows growing longer, fall can seem a bit drab for some folks. The easiest way to brighten up your landscape is with fall color. Nothing provides as much impact as annuals. Unfortunately, we are in that "gray" area of the calendar when it's too late to take advantage of the heat loving annuals like Vinca, and it's too early to see success with the true cool season annuals like Pansies and Snapdragons. So, if you take anything away from this GardenLine Tip today, hold off on planting your typical "cool season annuals."
While you will see a lot of pansies and snaps etc. at nurseries and garden centers, I suggest that if you want to succeed with such annuals that you wait until at least Halloween to begin planting them. Yes, they are for sale, and they've come from growers who have produced them this early for a reason. That reason: They know some people refuse to listen to logic, and want 'em no matter what. So, at the very least, they must supply that foolhardy market.
But there are a couple of transition annuals you can plant right now that will actually do fairly well until the first frost. Then there are the basic cool season annuals, which if you wait to plant them until late October-early November, they will reward you with much color. And don't forget the upcoming Bulb and Plant Mart which will be October 3rd through the 5th at the Westminster United Methodist Church. Click here for details.
