“Seed” and “Vegetative” Annuals – What’s The Difference?
A big question we’re always asked is the difference between our Premium Annuals and our Jumbo Annual trays. The difference is in the genetics. Seed annuals are the Danny Devitos where as vegetative annuals are the Arnold Schwarzeneggers of the flower world.
There’s nothing wrong with The Danny version, they’re great, but Arnold – or rather our Premium Annuals – have some qualities that give them a slight edge such as….
Many Vegetative Annuals are frost tolerant, some down to 23 degrees. This is important because you can plant these earlier and enjoy them later into the season.
You can feed these annuals with every watering and it won’t be too much. This is the secret to having the best looking flowers on the street!
All their energy is dedicated toward flowering and branching as opposed to reproducing like a seed annual.
Put the gloves away; most vegetative varieties require little or no picking of spent flowers.
