There's a nearly endless list of annuals and perennials you can plant for four season interest in your garden. Start at fall planting time by putting spring-flowering bulbs (daffodils or tulips, for example) under such winter bedding plants as violas or flowering kale. Around New Year's, you might replace the fall annuals with primulas; in early spring, pull out the primulas in favor of calendulas, wallflowers, or English daisies. Your last planting might be a summer selection of lobelia, ageratum, geraniums, marigolds, or petunias. There may be other plants available seasonally at your favorite garden center, but at least you have a few ideas now on how to stage your garden's spectacular display. Enjoy!
