Gardening With Annuals

Anonymous added on February 7, 2014 | Answered

If I cut back my zinnias and marigolds at the end of summer, will they grow back in the spring? Or do I have to plant seeds every year?

Both of these plants are considered annuals and will not come back in spring. However, seeds that have dropped will oftentimes surprise you each spring with new sprouts, though maybe not where you plan for them to be. Of course, you can also save the seeds from the blooms you've cut back and sow them yourself too.
