Greetings. I'm new to gardening & my dilemma is not knowing what can & cannot be grown together. Is there a book or any online websites that teach this? My experience is that all th local shops & professionals want too much money for their advice, drawings & or recommendations of their expertise & I would rather do this all myself for th relaxation & satisfaction (should I be successful). I wish to create a flowerbed along side my garage, narrow yet long (2'-3' x about 25') and fill it with everything purple, well maybe a few different colors, & I have ample yard space for other small flower beds & such, so dividing different species that do not grow together is not a problem. Again, my problem is lack of knowledge & how to gain this knowledge of which plants, shrubs, flowers & bushes go with which.
Thank you for your time & Please Help!!!
