Tips on Transplanting Annuals
Plant annuals in large blocks of single colors or varieties, instead of single-file rows, for the most dramatic effect.
Pinch the growing tip out of tall-growing plants to encourage branching and shorter growth. This method may result in smaller but more plentiful flowers.
Remove spent flowers -- called deadheading -- to keep annuals blooming throughout the season. Once they set seeds, most annuals stop producing flowers.
