Let me start out by saying that I know precious little about gardening. That being said, I am an intern for a non-profit organization that would like to set up a series of potted plants in an empty playground pit we have behind our building.
The goal is that the plants will provide some greenery to the barren landscape, since we frequently host events in our backyard. They will be around a few picnic tables. We're hoping by adding some greenery potential donors will be more impressed, but we do not have much time or money to spend.
We are in Austin, Tx, and are hoping for plants that do well all year long with our seasons.
Because they are in a sand pit, they have to be plants that can stay potted.
I would really appreciate any advice anyone can give! Feel free to make as many suggestions as you would like!
