Dear Elaine,

I would like to expand my flower garden. I love the sequence of bloom with perennials and the long blooming annuals. Is there a way to get more plants without having to buy more next spring?
Thank you,
Dear Viola,
Flowers can really perk up a property. But please know that your perennials will return next year because of their hardy rootstock and crown. Some annuals self-seed and can continue to grow and bloom in your garden for many years. This could be an economical way to get more plants and fill in the gaps between perennials. We encourage and allow self-seeding of some plants at Laurelwood Arboretum.

Self-seeding plants drop their pods, capsules or seeds at the end of the season. The plants may be annuals, biennials or perennials. The seeds then need nothing but soil and seasonal changes to grow again in the spring. (Continue reading...)
