Annuals are an excellent way to ensure colour in your yard all summer long. Every Spring gardeners look for fresh ideas and innovative trends, as well as, time tested favourites.

Annuals can be used for borders, in beds, hanging baskets and window boxes, as well as to creep up walls or trellises. The variety of uses and colour combinations are endless.
Annuals are the hero’s of summer gardens with their continual blooming and their array of colors. They  ll the spots in gardens that can be under whelming, or become a feature of their own.
With Calgary’s short growing season, annuals should be planted in seedling form after the last chance of frost. When choosing a spot to plant, consider the annual’s growth habit. Tall plants may be best positioned at the backs of beds where they will not block the view of smaller plants.
When planting your annual plants, you can try something new or lean on an old favourite. We have new and exotic annuals from greengate’s  nest suppliers and Proven Winners.
