Hey all - I'm a newbie, but doing great with my veggie seed starting. We live in Atlanta. I want my non-veggie decorative garden beds long the front of my house to be full of life and pretty foliage. We haven't gotten the hang of that yet, but each year, we buy whatever flowers they are featuring at garden centers, buy a bunch, and stick them in the ground. They die in winter - repeat.
On occasion, I see those year-round type greenery that come back each year for sale - I love that kind of stuff - but each plant can be expensive.
So now that I'm into seed starting - I figured I might be able to grow my own. I don't actually have any preference as to what I put out there. I would just like something that is somewhat low maintenance and comes back each year, or adds longer-term beauty to my gardens.
Any ideas on some plants and flowers I might try to start given my Atlanta location?
