Seed sowing and growing definition guide:


Hardy Annual - These flowers complete their entire life cycle in one year.


Half-hardy Annual - These plants also cycle through their life span in the space of one year, the main difference between a half hardy annual and a hardy annual is that the half hardy annuals require more time to grow.


Hardy Biennial - A group of plants that are sown in the spring or summer and moved to their blossoming position in the autumn or early spring the following year. They will flower roughly 12 months after they've been sown. 


Hardy Perennial - Perennial plants will go on flowering year after year as long as they are cared for. 


Half-hardy Perennial - A group of plants that need to be sown in a propagator or heated greenhouse early in the year. These plants will blossom in their first season.


Flowering Position - The place in your garden that you want your flowers to bloom


Thin - Thinning seedlings means removing some of the plants that are growing too closely together
