9 Steps For Planting & Growing Healthy Annual Plants
Our plant nursery’s secret to growing beautiful and healthy annuals is in the preparation of your beds.
Before you purchase any of your annuals from our landscape supply store, make sure your beds are prepared first.
A few weeks before you plan to plant your annual plants, till or spade your landscape bed to about 6 inches deep.
Increase available nutrients by laying between 2 and 3 inches of potting soil, compose, or other type of organic matter.
Fertilize the planting area with a controlled-release fertilizer that will provide nutrients all season long. Match the fertilizer with the type of Annuals you plan to plant.
Make sure that the annuals you have chosen were selected based upon how much sunlight they will receive in the spots they will be planted. Some varieties need sunlight all day, while others do better with just a few hours of sunlight.
Prevent nematodes (commonly referred to as ring worms) from infesting the landscape bed. They can cause a lot of damage to annuals. Fumigants can be very effective against nematodes.
Before you plant your annual plants, water them well to loosen up any compacted soil.
Plant each annual be digging a hole 4 – 6 inches deep. Make the hole twice as wide as your annual’s root ball. Also, be sure to consider the spacing between each plant. The space should be based on the mature size of the annual.
In order to help prevent weeds and to conserve moisture, lay mulch in the landscape bed.
Water the annuals everyday, until they are well-established and able to flourish.
