Starting your new garden can be daunting. (And time consuming, too.)

It's hard to hide our excitement to quickly fill these planting beds with blooms knowing that it takes lots of time (and yes... lots of money, too).

P. Allen Smith recommends filling the borders of your project with quick-growing annuals.

While the shrubs and perennials are taking time to develop, your border annuals balloon into colorful displays in just a few weeks.

As an added bonus, they make wonderful cut flowers to bring into the house.

P.S. Have a look at my other investigations, videos and podcasts and get the real truth about life...
