When it comes to annual flower seeds, whether you are growing a few bedding plants for yourself, or running a commercial greenhouse for profit, annual bedding plants cannot be overlooked. These are the charmers of the flower world. Color is what these guys are all about, and most will bloom their little heads off until frost finally shuts them down. Many adapt to container culture with ease. They will put on a show that will delight in both mass planting or in a more intimate up-close presentation. Many easy annual seeds like hollyhock, alyssum, or nasturtium can be directly sown where you want them to grow. Other annual flower seeds are better if started ahead in a controlled environment until they are large enough to be planted out. In either case your soul will thank you for these seeds throughout the growing season.
The earth laughs in flowers.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
