Im making my first ever garden. its a gated garden. Veggies and fruit on the inside and flowers around the outside. Ive read al ot about pansies and they seem to be colorful/hardy/and last all year long. I live in southern california so the weather never gets too cold. On another note I really love columbines. Could these too successfuly coexist together? Ive read that pansies do better with dafoldiles, tulips, and iris' and should be planted at the same time as a bulb. If anyone could help me out let me know. Id like as much advice and tips possible.
