Annuals and biennials both have limited life spans as plants. Annuals are plants which live for one year and most of them flower in the first three to four months from the time of sowing. Annuals are divided into two groups – summer-flowering and winter/spring flowering. Annual flowers are a favourite amongst gardeners because they give a great burst of colour for little work. Biennials, on the other hand, live for two years. Biennials suit cool climates and are best sewn in spring. We have planting information on a wide range of popular annuals and biennials such as Dill, Oats, Kale, Petunia and Coriander as well and gardening advice on many more annuals and biennials.
Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
