Before you plant, find out what grows well in your area. Go on an organized garden tour or two or visit nurseries and take notes about what plants you love and the conditions in which they’re grown. Protect your heart and your wallet by seeking plants in harmony with your growing conditions.
And don’t forget your nearest resource: your neighbors. Many gardeners are eager to talk about what they grow and may even be willing to share seeds or volunteer to give you some seedlings or show you how to propagate plants from cuttings from their yard.
