Fall Planting in Idaho - Knowledgebase Question

I live in North Idaho, I don't know the zone, as this will be my first attempt at a garden. I have heard that there are seeds and bulbs that I can buy to plant this fall and they will bloom next spring and summer. I am interested in flowers and vegetables. When I went to your catalog to buy some, I found myself overwhelmed. What can I plant now for blooms/plants in spring and summer in the Idaho panhandle? Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you.

magnesium.

Most bulbs like full sun, but afternoon shade can also be appropriate. Excellent reference for beginners are the Gardening For Dummies series, coauthored by the editors at the National Gardening Association.

You're in USDA zone 6. As far as seeds go, why not order a hard copy of the Burpee catalog and take your time thumbing through it, choosing the veggies you and your family enjoy the most? Plan on providing all day sunshine for your veggies. Good luck!
