Whether they're annuals, biennials or perennials, most gardeners can't wait until the last spring frost so they can start planting. Sears has the products and information you need to have beautiful flowers and plants all season long, so you'll be ready to get out and work on your lawn and garden once Mother Nature is ready. If it only lasts for a few weeks or one season, it's an annual, such as peas or marigolds. A biennial, such as Lunaria or parsley, lasts for two years. A perennial, such as mint or lavender, lasts for two years or more. Perennials, along with different types of vines, also offer a great option for ground cover.
Let your garden do the work for you with perennials that grow year after year
With your busy lifestyle, it can be hard to get anything done, and a garden may be the furthest thing from your mind. However, a garden doesn't have to involve a lot of time and effort if you know what to plant. Perennials, plants that come back year after year, are a great way to have a garden that is low-maintenance and easy to care for. There are many perennial florals and plants available so that you can find the perfect and most beautiful plants for your yard. Whether you are opting for potted plants that come back year after year or live trees that just keep growing, a perennial option is one that you will get excited for when blooming season is near.
Perennial flowers are some of the most favorite styles of perennial plants, perhaps because they signal a change of season with vibrant colors and elegant silhouettes. Popular perennials in the spring are daffodils, tulips and lilies. These plants lie dormant in the winter and then spring to life when the warm weather and spring rains signal it is safe to grow. Later in the spring, look out for hyacinths and irises. Even fall flowers can be perennial; mums are very hardy and come back year after year in a burst of fall yellows, oranges and reds.
Many edible plants are perennials as well. You are perhaps most familiar with fruit trees, which produce any number of naturally sweet and tart confections each year. Fruit trees can be very finicky about the environment they will grow in, which is why you typically see citrus fruits in the south, where seasonal frosts are less common. An apple or cherry tree is a good perennial fruit choice that is hardy in most environments and will produce a delicious fruit for years to come. Slightly more finicky, but also hardy, are vine and bush fruits like grapes, blueberries and blackberries. These plants can thrive on their own, but become even more fruitful with only a little bit of tender loving care.
Many vegetables are annual plants that die off when the growing season is over. However, there are several vegetable plants that are perennial. Asparagus, green onions, potatoes and rhubarb are some plants that don't require seasonal planting every year. Many of these plants are root vegetables that have a longer growing season as well, which means you can have a bounteous crop that will last you through the winter without a lot of extra tilling and planting!
If you are looking for perennial seeds and bulbs, make your first stop Sears, where you will find a great variety of annual and perennial plants to accent any flower, vegetable or herb garden. Plus, Sears also has everything you need to keep that garden blooming beautifully for years to come, with sprinklers to hydrate roots, fertilizer to add nutrients for growth and good old hand tools to help you keep weeds and unwanted growth at bay.
