As a novice gardener (unless there anything more remedial than novice) I'm grateful to have stumbled upon this site.
This afternoon a very helpful woman at the garden store sent me home with a lovely assortment of goodies for what we believed to be a garden bed in our backyard. After two hours of digging, I discovered that it was about 10 inches of soil that covered a rock garden. At the very base is. . .blacktop.
Does anyone have good suggestions for perennials that would tolerate a shallow bed in full sun? We're in NE Ohio.
I'll likely post in another section asking for advice on the front yard, which is where I'll likely have to re-designate the plants purchased for the backyard.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
