|What kind of border would you recommend for my garden. I already planted tulips, daffadils and daylillies. I want a nice and short border for the garden.

|There are so many plants you could use, depending on the look you are after and the size you have in mind as well as the growing conditions in your garden. A traditional edger is tiny boxwoods clipped into a hedge. You could use a low growing sedum or an herb such as thyme if you want a perennial edger, or a line of little French marigolds for annuals. In shade you might try an edger of tiny hostas.
