Weeds and not so annual annuals

17 years ago

We have a problem with a two of the smaller flower beds. Annuals we were experimenting with and threw seeds down for last year and the year before are growing now (and not then)! Not a complaint by any means. BUT is this common thing to happen?

The real problem is we have been afraid to weed these beds due to the difficulty of knowing what is a weed and what is seed. Specially when plants are seedlings, but as much so as grown plants without blooms yet. Is there any rule of thumb to know which plants are weeds and which are not? We are learning without anyone in person who can show the ropes. Making lots of fun mistakes along the way (can we say planting/seeding WAY to many different types of plants). But we've learned lots!
