Annuals, is the most advanced school of Gardening.
What to plant? Out of hundreds you have to select a few.
What would be the scheme of planting, formal or informal, bed planting or mixed planting, Mixing by heights and colours, Planning for flowers throughout the year or all at the same time, same plants every year or different ones each year, same scheme or different every year.

Interesting......... perception error/common mistake :-) on my part. However how would you grade raising a single plant of both varieties, which is more harder to grow?

Farhan, All living organisms have developed to flourish best in a specified environment. You can grow anything by artificially providing it the environment of its choice.
To avoid any heart ache it is best to select plants which are known to thrive in the local conditions.
My Amaryllis Hippeastrum forum friends from Europe and USA were sure I will not be able to grow Quality amaryllis in our climatic conditions, 22C being the ideal temperature for them, but like humans many plants have a remarkable adaptability so only answer is hit and trial.
I find Holly Hock the easiest, I have never sown one and enjoy them every year, they just keep coming.

Very handy information totally based on experince and in such a easy way explanation.
But one have to earn his own experience fr developing proper understanding. Will be requiring proper time , patience and skill to get the results which is not easy for new ones or ametures.
I dont have much experince in gardening but after every few months find myself stuck..deciding what i want to grow & what will actually grow according to seasonal conditions is not easy.
