Introduction to annual and biennial plants
Annual plants have a limited and reduced lifespan, but they also have great appeal. Together with these we also count the biennial ones, which are generally chosen to be grown in pots. The care of the latter does not require special precautions but they present different flowering characteristics during the first crop year.
In any case, most of the annual and biennial plants are cultivated only to be able to enjoy their blooms and have a great visual and lasting impact over time. Depending on the habit, they are divided into bushy, erect, ground covering, hanging and even climbing plants.
The choice of an annual plant is not easy and must be evaluated very carefully, always taking into great consideration the size and the place where it will be placed.
The difference between annual and biennial plants essentially consists in the fact that the first are sown, bloom and die within a year of their birth. The biennial ones, on the other hand, are able to withstand the frost and low temperatures of the winter season, to bloom in the following year. Having said that, however, it should be emphasized that biennial plants are treated in the same way as annual ones, since they can only be bought already developed and only ready to bloom and then changed just after the end of their life cycle. Nothing prevents you from choosing to sow biennial essences directly in pots and wait for the next crop year to flower.
