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!
