Annuals are a type of plant that only lives for one growing season.
An annual is the opposite of a perennial. It lives for one year, sometimes more than one but not always. This means that once it has finished its blooming cycle it will die and you will have to plant new ones next year.
There are many types of annuals: snapdragons, petunias and marigolds are all examples.
Annuals need to be planted every year as they do not live past their blooming cycle which usually takes nine months from planting to harvesting.
Annuals tend to bloom in either mid-summer or early fall, depending on the type you are planting.
Annuals tend to bloom in either mid-summer or early fall, depending on the type you are planting.
Some annuals will bloom multiple times, while others will only bloom once and then need to be replaced.
If you are growing annuals that flower in early summer, make sure they have enough time to grow before the heat of summer sets in. You don’t want to plant your annuals too early or too late.
The blooms of an annual can last for several weeks if it is watered regularly and cared for properly.
Different types of annuals live best in different climates and weather conditions.
When it comes to choosing the right type of annuals for your garden, there are many factors to consider. For example, you may wish to choose one or more annuals that will blossom at different times of the year, so as to give your garden a longer flowering season. Another consideration is climate and weather conditions; different types of annuals live best in different climates and weather conditions.
Below is a list showing some common types of annuals that do well in each climate/weather condition:
- Hot and dry climates: philadelphus, helichrysum, sunflower
- Cold and dry climates: hollyhock, ageratum
- Hot and wet climates: sweet pea plant
- Cold and wet climates: lily-of-the-valley
Annuals require a lot of sunlight and water to grow, as well as soil and nutrients.
Annuals and Philadelphus require a lot of sunlight and water to grow, as well as soil and nutrients. A great deal of the time, you may find yourself having to create the environment they need. This is because they are either being grown in an area that doesn’t get enough sunlight or rain, or there isn’t enough soil or nutrients for them to flourish.
The amount of sunlight, water and soil required very much depends on the type of annual you are growing. For example;
- African Violets require constant watering and consistent temperatures (between 65°F – 75°F / 18°C – 24°C)
- Carnations prefer cooler climates but will tolerate temperatures between 32°F – 86°F (0°C – 30°C). They also like full sun however can do with a bit less if needed
- Clematis thrives in rich moist soil
- Caesalpina gilliesii likes sunnier spots but seems happy enough in part shade too
There are many other factors to consider when planting annuals such as the types of flowers available, whether they will be able to grow in your garden/space etc… The good thing is that once you have gotten over this initial hurdle, you can then sit back and enjoy your beautiful plants!
When planting annuals, use your fist to check the depth of the hole being made so it is not too shallow or too deep.
Many people assume that you need a trowel to measure the depth of the hole but you can actually just use your fist. This is what I would advise so long as the plant is not a tree or anything too large, in which case you may need to use something other than your fist. Use your fist to check the depth of the hole being made so it is not too shallow or too deep. The hole should be about half the height of the root ball for perennials and annuals, and about twice as deep for trees.
One of the most common types of annual is philadelphus, or mock orange. This is a plant that has white flowers and produces loose petals, as well as a citrus scent.
Before you get started, you should know that this particular type of annual is easy to grow. As long as it gets enough sunlight and water throughout the year, they will thrive and produce flowers every summer.
You can also choose between two different varieties: the hybrid “Babe”, which has white blossoms with orange centres, or the “Mock Orange”, which looks similar but has a marmalade orange centre instead.
Another important aspect to note is that most people think of plants like these as more for their home than for their garden. That’s true both in terms of their size and how much care they need (which isn’t much). There are many people who keep them in pots on their windowsill all year round, just because they don’t have room for them outdoors or because live plants are not usually part of a lot of people’s homes. Others have several pots outside their homes, but still only two around the house that they take care of at all times.Annuals and Philadelphus Care

Why Plant Annuals?
Annuals grow quickly so give you instant results. They also tend to be more exciting in terms of flowers than perennials, which can be dull in comparison. They attract bees and insects which will pollinate your garden and help keep it healthy.
Hi and welcome to our new blog about Annuals and Philadelphus Care. We will be covering all the things you need to know about your new plants, what to expect and how to look after them.
Annuals can be a great addition to your garden, but like all plants, they need regular care. Here are some of our favorite tips on how to make your Annuals and Philadelphus thrive!
Pruning: The best time to prune is early spring (March or April) when the plant is in its dormant state. Remove any dead, diseased or damaged wood. This may seem counter-intuitive, but it allows the plant to focus its energy on new growth rather than old growth that may not survive.
Watering: If you haven’t had much rain lately, water your Annuals and Philadelphus deeply once a week until the soil is moist. When you’re watering, pay attention to the moisture levels of the soil at different depths so that you can adjust accordingly.
Fertilizer: While it’s best not to add fertilizer if there are signs of nutrient deficiencies in the soil, a balanced liquid fertilizer can help strengthen weak stems and encourage healthy foliage development during growing season (April through September).
Disease and Pests: Watch out for aphids! They suck sap from leaves which can cause leaf yellowing and premature leaf drop. If you see them on your plants, use insecticidal soap or

Welcome to the first installment of Annuals and Philadelphus Care. As you may know, an annual is a plant that grows and reproduces over the course of one year. This means they grow, flower, set seed and die all in the span of 12 months or less.
Annuals are biennials (a plant that takes two years to complete its biological lifecycle) or perennial plants (a plant that lives for more than two years) that are cultivated for their flowers or foliage.
In this series, I’ll be sharing my best tips on how to care for popular annuals like petunias, snapdragons, marigolds and more!
Today’s post will focus on the philadelphus, also known as mock orange. Mock oranges are deciduous shrubs native to Asia and Europe. They can grow up to 15 feet tall in some cases! The blooms look like white daisies and have a sweet aroma similar to orange blossom or jasmine.
In the next post, I’ll write about growing marigolds in containers!
If you are planning on planting an Annuals, or have recently had one delivered, then this blog post will come in handy: we discuss the care and maintenance of your new plant.
Annuals are a very popular type of plant that can be planted in almost any region around the world. They are generally low-maintenance plants and do not require much water to survive.
First up we will look at what to expect when you first receive your Annuals. The most important thing is to check that it is in good condition and has not been damaged during transportation. If you find that your Annuals has been damaged, then contact the retailer who will be able to provide you with a replacement.
Once you have checked that your plant is in good condition and undamaged, then you can begin planting it!
The best place to plant your annuals is an area of land that receives a lot of sunlight during the summer months but is shaded during the winter. The soil should also be well drained and moist but not soggy so that water does not pool on top of it causing rot or root damage. You can use a shovel to dig out small holes for your plants about six inches deep each time and three feet apart from each other so
