 About the Annuals We Grow....


We define 'annuals' as those flowering and foliage plants which will not survive the winter outdoors in our northern climate. This very general, but simple term captures all those annuals, biennials, herbs, vegetables, and tender perennials which die in winter outdoors and differentiated from those plants we consider to be truly hardy perennials and shrubs. 

On this page, our 'Annuals' include bedding plants, potted specialty plants, accent foliage plants, hanging baskets, and mixed container plants. We've also included annual grasses and vines in separate lists to help you design your own container pots. Remember Ben's 'recipe' for great containers: thrillers (tall plants in center), spillers (vines around the outside), and fillers (to fill in the pot).

We offer our annual selection in a variety of pot sizes, and prices, from packs and pots for planting into a garden or planters, 6 and 8" pots for quick color and fill-out, and planters, combination and hanging pots all ready to enjoy.  Specifically, we grow 'seeded' annuals in 4-packs, 6-packs and individual 3" pots. Our Specialty Annuals (those grown vegetatively: from cuttings) are generally available in 3, 4 1/2", 5" or 6 inch pots. Vegetables are generally grown in 4 or six packs. Vegetatively produced herbs are grown in 4" pots; seeded herbs in packs or pots.

As the snow disappears: usually mid-April or so, hardy annuals become available such as pansies, petunias, violas and dianthus. By Mother's Day the greenhouse is full of colorful flowering annuals and potted plants. Our latest frosts here are generally near the end of May, after which tender vegetables and garden plants may be safely set out.

    Bedding plants, specialty annuals, hanging baskets and combination pots are available for gardeners throughout May and June. In July and August, large colorful planters and hanging baskets and mixed combination pots are available. These showy specimens can brighten up porches, decks, and patios as the season progresses. See our listing of Annuals below for the varieties we growing this year at Wayside Farm. Be sure to also check out our perennials: many are in their prime in mid-summer!
