Hi Flowergoddess,

Welcome to The Helpful Gardener and congratulations on your new home. I used to live in Queens and the Catskills so I'm familiar with your growing conditions.

As Scott said, it's too late for spring bulbs unless someone you know didn't get them planted and gifts them to you. You can still plant them if the ground isn't frozen. They'll just bloom late, if at all, but will rebound the following year.

I noticed you said that you said
WHAT CAN I USE BESIDES IMP'S, WHICH I LOVE CAUSE THEY LAST SO LONG...
Are you referring to impatiens? If so, the only ones that might be able to take your full sun conditions would be the New Guinea type. They would need constant water though. They do best in morning or afternoon sun. Take a look here.

You might want to consider using annuals the first year for color and planning and planting which perennials will give you long lasting color. Most perennials only bloom for 2 to 3 weeks and that is what makes it a challenge to have color all season long. One group of perennials that come to mind are the reblooming and everblooming daylilies. I planted some in my daughter's front yard and they bloomed all summer. Some are even fragrant.

If you would like some sites for garden design, just let me know as I have several. There is lots to consider, most of all the soil. Healthy soil will give you stronger plants that will be better able to deal with pests, drought and stress. I can give you sites for that as well.

Also, please remove the caps lock on your keyboard. In computer language it means that you are yelling and it's hard on the eyes.

Thanks,
Newt

Thanks Newt!

I am a little short on time lately (off to trade shows for the next two weeks), so your help is doubly appreciated (In other words 2,000,000 thanks :lol: )

And if Newt is answering your question you are in good hands, Flower Goddess...
