Are you planting ornamental plants?
Neat plant, Kay! I usually wait until the week before Mother's Day to purchase my ornamentals, as here in the Midwest, Mother Nature is notoriously schizophrenic.
The locally owned garden center I frequent always has a nice variety of coleus and New Guinea impatiens, and one of my faves, Magilla Perilla. I've cut way back on the annuals I used to plant, my perennials have pretty much taken over all the gardens, which is fine with me.
Love climbing roses. I have a Blaze and a couple of Zephrine Drouhins that do fine in the shade.
She who dies with the most toys, wins.
