I am fairly new to gardening and brand new to this forum, so hello
and....surprise surprise..... i need help. Haha
My husband and i own a townhouse with little space to create a nice garden. We pay a home owners association fee every month for landscaping, but they are very lazy about it, and it never looks as good as it's potential.
There is a small space in front of our front door up against the house that used to have awful prickly bushes that i hated. I dug up the bushes, and now it's barren. Haha
My husband is in the Air force, and i thought it might be cute to do a red white a blue themed little garden in that space that we have. I was thinking some sort of taller white shrub maybe, with red and blue flowers in front. Problem with this is i have no idea what to plant...or when to plant it. It would be ideal to have everything in bloom at the same time, but I'm sure that might be a little difficult. I just recently purchased stone edging blocks, and lots of organic top soil to get started. I'm anxious to get something growing in there!!
If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be much appreciated
