“How do you decide what to plant? My sister gave me the best advice ever: Find a nursery you like and go there every week from May through September. Whatever’s in bloom that you like, take home three pots (mostly perennials) and stick it in the yard. Next year you’ll have a garden that has something in bloom every week from May to October.”
