Annuals Or Perennials? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by shanick

I am taking up gardening this year. I do not know anything about the subject. What is the difference between annnuals and perennials? If I plant annuals, do I have to plant them again next year as they will only bloom once and then die? Will perennials bloom and then bloom again next year? I am looking to plant flowers that will last all summer and come back next year.

Collect seeds on dry, sunny days to avoid any excess moisture. If needed, dry seeds completely on sheets of newspaper for a week or so. Dispose of stems and leaves. A screen or colander works well to remove chaff. Store seeds in an airtight container in a cool, dry place or in the refrigerator.

"Annuals for Dummies" and "Perennials for Dummies" would be good resources for you as you start out. Good luck!
