Know Your Flowers: Annuals & Perennials

Everyone agrees on the obvious: flowers ARE beautiful. However, not all flowers are made equal when it comes to their life-cycle and blooming habits.

You've probably heard of our weekly specials on annuals and perennials at the Reston Farm Market, but wonder what's the difference between the two categories? We are happy to "decode" the gardening language for you and look at the gardening strategies that will keep your garden full of blooms all season long. 

Annuals

Annuals are the plants that complete their life cycle in one year. These low-maintenance annual flowers will bloom all season, making them a great choice for containers and hanging baskets. Annual flowers are loved by many gardeners, as they prevent repetitive boredom and allow them to have a totally different garden every year. If you want to experiment with a new color scheme in your garden or try some new plants, annuals are the way to go!

At Reston Farm Market, we carry a variety of annual flowers and plants. From garden's darling petunia to sweet vanilla-like alyssum, cosmos flowers, vibrant portulaca, verbena, classic geranium, and much, much more!

Perennials

Perennials flowers are designed to live for three or more years. They are perfect for those gardeners who like consistency and/or have no time to experiment with the garden. However, standard perennials have a much shorter blooming cycle compared to annuals. Try mixing different kinds to establish a blooming pattern - hibiscus, hydrangeas, daisies, gaillardias, and other perennials. 

We, at Reston Farm Market, have a huge selection of both annuals and perennials to fit the needs of your unique garden. Committed to organic gardening, we also carry a variety of natural mulch, organic soil, organic plant food and natural fertilizers, and more exceptional quality gardening tools. Stop by today!

Fruits and Roots: The Benefits of Organic Gardening

Organic gardening has many benefits. Most importantly, it is designed to work with the ecological systems and minimally disturb the Earth’s natural balance. 

Healthy, nutritious, and chemical-free produce is one of the most obvious advantages of the organic gardening. However, there are other, more invisible benefits of organic gardening. One of them is healthier soil, which in turn, makes organic gardening more resilient and therefore more suitable for producing healthy vegetables, fruits, and roots. 

At Reston Farm Market, we are committed to our deep-rooted values of bringing fresh, locally sourced organic produce, dairy, and organic gardening products to our local community in Northern Virginia and beyond. This spring season, we carry a great selection of organic and natural gardening products: from organic plant food, organic soil, natural mulch, and organic vegetable seeds to gardening tools, and much more. Some of the organic gardening products you can expect to find at Reston Farm Market are:

  • Organic Plant-tone - the all natural organic fertilizer made from the finest quality organics available. Plant-tone's natural organics break down gradually, providing a long lasting food reservoir activated throughout the growing season and ensuring superior plant growth.

  • A wide selection of natural, organic soil and mulch.
  • Organic vegetable seeds, flower seeds, herb seeds, and grass seeds.

Let's Talk About Mulch

Every gardener knows the benefits of a mulch. Applied to the surface of the soil it helps to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, suppress weed growth, and simply makes your garden look beautiful.

Mulch can be applied to the soil surface, around trees, paths, flower beds, and vegetable growing areas. It is also used to prevent soil erosion on slopes and in production areas for flower and vegetable crops. It is recommended to have two inches in depth of mulch.

As you are getting your garden ready for spring, it is important to pick the right kind of soil and mulch. We have a great mulch and soil sale at the Reston Farm Market. Stop by and get as much as you need!

The Reston Farm Market is opened every day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
