I am looking to grow some type of blue flower or plant if possible. I will be having it grow on the side of my condo, and not sure what to really buy. I have an idea as to what to do but not an expert.

You can grow blue lupine, blue sage, rosemary, flax, blue phlox, or Butterfly Blue Scabiosa in your garden. You'll want to prepare the soil prior to planting by digging in compost or other organic matter. Simply spread 3-4 inches of compost over the top of the bed and dig it in to a depth of 8-10 inches, level the soil and plant your new plants. Water them well after planting and be sure to water deeply twice a week during the hot summer months. Best wishes with your new garden!
