Starting A Flower Bed - Knowledgebase Question

Question by puresloan

I am definitely a novice at planning to start a flower garden and need some very basic advice on what steps to take. I live in a mobile home park and am limited on space. I just want to beautify our home surroundings somewhat and would like to plant a small flower garden on the east end of our home and possibly another one on the north side.
Could you suggest something not too elaborate that a novice could manage or direct me to some other source for information?

It sounds like the eastern and northern areas of your yard will probably get shade for at least part of the day, so plants that thrive in partial shade are recommended. Easy annuals to try are coleus, impatiens, ageratum, alyssum, four-o-clocks, and nicotiana. Some bulbs to consider for the future are caladium and tuberous begonias.

If you have more questions, please send them our way. Enjoy!
