Annual Plants: What to Do When They Arrive

Transform your garden into a vibrant oasis with minimal effort using our Blooming Blocks pre-planted flower collections. Here's how to care for your annual plants to ensure a season full of color and life:

On Arrival

  1. Open your box and remove the plants immediately.
  2. Keep plants in their tray and water deeply.
  3. Set in a shady, sheltered outdoor location to let them acclimate over a few days.
  4. Gently remove the plants from the tray.


Location: Choose a spot that matches the light requirements of your Blooming Blocks. Whether it's a sun-drenched patio or a partially shaded garden path, positioning is key.

Soil: Ensure the area around your pre-planted collections is filled with rich, well-draining soil to encourage healthy growth.

Care Instructions

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. During hotter days, you may need to water more frequently to maintain moisture levels.

Fertilizing: Feed your plants with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer to support continuous growth and blooming. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package for the best results.

Deadheading: While our collections are designed for easy care, removing spent flowers can encourage new blooms and extend the blooming period.

Enjoying Your Garden

Relaxation: With the planting done, take time to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of your garden. Whether it's through quiet mornings with a cup of coffee or evenings admiring the sunset, let your garden be a source of daily joy.

Wildlife: Watch as your garden attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies, adding another layer of life and beauty to your outdoor space.

Wayside Garden's pre-planted flower collections are about more than convenience; they're about bringing the joy and beauty of gardening into your life with ease. Follow these care tips to make the most of your Blooming Blocks and enjoy a garden that flourishes throughout the season.
