Annuals are fairly easy to care for. If you plant them properly at the right time, annuals will have no problems surviving the season. Make sure to plant your annuals after the chances of frost have diminished and to water them only when they are newly planted.

Daisies have long been a favorite among gardeners for a variety of reasons. Not only are these beautiful flowers pleasant to look at, they are also fairly easy to maintain and grow. The trick, though, lies not in making them grow, but in making them truly thrive.

Soon you will have big, beautiful sunflowers that will brighten your day while growing and leave behind a great snack once it dies.
