Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by The Press in Focus

As you go to the garden center and are looking to buy some plants, keep their life cycles in mind.

If you want something that you don't have to plant each year, don't buy annuals.

Here are tips that will help you buy the kind of plants that you want for your flower garden.

Plants are classified by the number of growing seasons required to complete their life cycle. Generally, these groups are annuals, biennials and perennials.
