Growing Green: With proper care, annuals rule

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 by LEHIGH COUNTY EXTENSION Special to The Press in Focus

Annual flowers include some of the most colorful plants in home gardens. With a little extra care during early and mid-summer, you can keep them attractive right up to frost time.

The first rule in keeping annual flowers blooming is to cut off dead flowers so they won't go to seed. True annuals die after setting seed, and even those plants that don't die will be reduced in vigor.
