Spring Annuals For Containers

Here are more blooming annuals that we got delivered to my company last Friday. Clients had wanted us to install their pots last Monday, however the temperatures were below freezing and it was sleeting…. Not really good weather for these guys. We instead started today.

  1. Oh, now I’m having a moment. My yard is a barren wasteland with only a few hyacinth. I need more flowers. No planting here until Mother’s Day. That’s my rule of thumb. Sigh.

  2. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it before! There’s the weirdest spot of dirt off my driveway next to the steps that I haven’t been able to decide the best course of action. A BIG OLE POT with fabulous flowers like you’ve shown us here! Great, thank you, I’m smiling.

    I love the large clusters of flowers. I always am sad though how short some of them flower. I’m finding that I really need some more spring bloomers to balance out the scattering of hyacinth & crocus I have. I had Chionodoxia come up this year but those darn rabbits…

    Thanks for sharing, flowers make me smile!

    • Glad to be of service! I have something at work that I will scan and post soon. It is my cheat sheet for perennial bloom times. It’s in my perennial nurseries book. This will help you in picking some things for spring. 🌹🌷

      • There’s a great book I picked up recently, I’ll have to go back and get the title but it’s about having a continuously blooming perennial garden. The author provides formulas for figuring out the number of plants you might need and gives great charts about plant growing habits, size, blooming time, etc. I would be interested in seeing your cheat sheet though too as I’m not picking my actual plants from her list, just following suggestions and going with what local nurseries offer.
