The Q&A Archives: What to plant

Question: I have a long driveway to the side of my house with a strip of grass between it and the driveway. There is a large area for planting at the end of the strip of grass, near the sidewalk, and space right next to the house. What can I plant in these areas? The spot near the sidewalk especially is designed to show off plants. I'm a total beginner! Help and thanks very much!!!

Answer: You're in luck! Penn State University has a website filled with pictures and growing conditions for plants especially suited to your growing region. Visit their webpage at and I'm sure you will find more plants than you have room to grow. Enjoy your new garden!
