Is everyone getting their curb appeal ready for the summer months? It's still raining here in NJ, but it doesn't stop me from planning and gettting ideas for my garden and planters. I don't have the greenest thumb, however, my husband does. He's great at keeping the flowers alive (something I cannot do).
We get a lot of sun by our house so we have to choose carefully on which plants can withstand the heat. It becomes a challenge because I usually like the flowers that thrive in shade. There are so many to choose from and we always leave the nurseries with a nice mixture. What is also important when planting is having different colors and heights. It gives dimension and character to your garden/planter. I am not a flower specialist by any means. I just have learned from experience and fails what to plant and not to plant to achieve the best, most attractive garden. Here are some photos for inspiration:
