Over the years I have planted plants that are suppose to be idiot proof, used Miracle Grow by the bags full and still have a lousy flower beds with no flowers. DH is having the front lawn re sodded so I gave in and told the guy to landscape my flower beds with shrubs. I'll buy flowers in pots from now on. My grandmother could grow beautiful flowers and had a big vegetable garden. All you gardeners out there, you have my admiration!
