    Question Bedding Plants

    I am looking for something different to plant this year. Hopefully before I go to raid my brother's greenhouses. He specializes in impatiens, though he has lots of other stuff, and I am so tired of impatiens. Anyone have any ideas? I live in the Northeast, Long Island's East End.

    I've decided to forego the annuals almost entirely this year and concentrate on perreniels and bulbs - some of my faves (and most are very low maintenance) are: violets and violas, statice, carnations, chives, lavender, fern bleeding heart, columbine. Hostas and peonies are also great - and for bulbs I had great success with daffodils and crocuses.

    living in Maine its sometimes tough to find hardy plants that will live thru the winter but all these have worked great for me and also self propogate.

    I planted 150 tulips this year. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment...but they look beaufitul! You should add some of those!

    What about pictures? Hmmmm?

    Maybe just a nice herb garden will do. Fresh herbs are nice to have. I am not sure if you are able to put a pot on your window sill but it is a nice decoration as well as herbs to cook with.

    Good point! I love the smell of rosemary and sage! Yummy!

    There are so many varieties that can be planted. I have even had someone tell me that they plants a row of small chive onions. Not sure how true.

    150 tulips? Wow, that would be beautiful! I love tulips but they don't grow in my climate. It doesn't get cold enough, long enough, in the winter.
