Garden Philosophy: I like colorful, pretty flowers and buy whatever grabs my eye. Some years are better than others.  My advice is to “Keep Planting, Don’t Give Up”.

Favorite Garden Tip : I always put bark mulch down after I plant my flowers. My garden gets hot, and the mulch helps conserve the moisture.
