Gardening - Using Annuals in Your Perrenial GardenWritten by Jill Dow
Annuals in your perrenial garden are something to think about! Annuals give you season long color, easy propogation, they're cost efficient, and provide first season interest.
If you're just starting a perrenial garden annuals are a great choice to fill in gaps. I remember my first garden. I bought a couple of plants thinking "This is gonna be great!" A few weeks later I realised this wasn't true. I needed a whole lot more plants and they cost a bunch! I opted for some annual seeds and I had a really pretty garden by seasons end. Annuals can certainly help to fill in a garden while you wait for perrenials to mature.
