PRAIRIE GARDENER: Annuals will add a splash of color to your flower bed
Published 06/19/2011, Grand Forks Herald
Your flower bed can be awash with color this summer and autumn if you plant some annual bedding plants now. Prices on plants often are lowered this time of year as garden centers wind down the planting season. These bargains are especially welcome if the family dog has destroyed some plants or the rabbits took a hankering for your fancy petunias.
