Winter seems to have gotten the best of most northerners this year, and even some southern states got a taste of Old Man Winter. We’re all excitedly anticipating spring right around the corner. Spring brings nice blooms of fragrant flowers, warm gentle breezes, and the promise of growth and new life. Spring is also a great time to put your home on the market so you can have the help of your Pittsburgh movers to help move you into your dream home.

One great way to celebrate spring is to plan out your garden for the year. Here’s a list of nice annuals that can add some much needed color to your landscaping, (not to mention some nice curb appeal!

When planting in a cool season, such as early spring or fall, you must pick the right plants that can survive a few frosts. Don’t despair though; there are many options for cool season zone such as pansies, primroses, and calendulas. These varieties can be planted in the soil as soon as the soil can be worked. This brings ample color and volume to a garden or landscaping that might look a little bare for a couple of months. Expect these cool season annuals to set their seed and wither away once the warm weather comes.

If you can’t wait to try your hand at the more warm weather annuals, you can always plant these in pots and keep them tucked away in your home or sunroom. When the weather is warmer and the risk of frost is over, you can either stick the entire pot outside or transplant these annuals in your beds for additional color.
