What Are Annuals & Perennials?

Annuals & Perennials

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Annuals and Perennials? Annuals are easy to grow although you do need to raise them from seed. Growing them from seed will give you a much wider choice of varieties than you’ll have if you buy ready-grown plants, and some species will flower in as little as 12 weeks. This video explains the differences between annuals and perennials.



  • Perennials are a low maintenance choice for beds and borders because you plant them once and they come back year after year.
  • Perennial plants and flowers make a garden look better and better with age.
  • Perennials are plants that live for more than two years.
  • The plants will grow during the warm season, appear to die during the winter and amazingly, will start to grow again from the roots or base of the plant the next season.
