Annual Flowers & Plants

This category of annual flowers & plants is made up of all species we offer which typically flower within the year of sowing already. Not all are annuals in a strict sense, some are biannuals whilst others are perennials in the Northern hemisphere. Most are fast growing and will reach flowering size within few months after sowing. They will thrive in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot, if not noted otherwise in the species' description.
Sow flat preferably from early to mid spring in any rich, well drained soil. Keep pots in a sunny and constantly warm spot inside at some 15°C to 25°C, e.g. on a window sill, in a heated greenhouse or in the wintergarden. Carefully transplant seedlings to the final spot in your garden in late spring or early summer, as soon as no more freezing nights are to be expected and night temperatures will stay above some 10°C. Several species, especially all winter hardy perennials, may be sowed directly to the ground in the garden in spring.
For more information on genera and quantity of seeds per package please refer to the specific category for a given plant.
