  6. What sorts of flowers and plants thrive in the northern US?

    I recently moved to Maine from Pennsylvania. I'm going to plant a garden this summer, but I don't know what sorts of plants and flowers will do best in the cooler tempetures. Any ideas? I'm renting the house, so I only need plants that will last one season. (the landlord already okayed the garden, so I don't have to worry about that). The house has a small yard bordered by trees on two sides, and a neighbor and a road on the other two, and most of it is very sunny. Its very rich, dark dirt, but its a little rocky. I'm looking for flowers, vegtables and herbs. I'm also on a budget, so plants I can grow from seed, or plants that are inexpensive would be the best. Any suggestions would be great! thanks!

  11. how can you make a sloping garden into a level garden ?

    our garden is 126 feet long and 17 feet wide. when you are standing on the patio area outside the conservatory doors,your feet are level with the top of fence at the bottom of the garden. therefore,over 126 foot the garden level drops 6 foot ? What gradiant of the drop from the top to the bottom of the garden ? I have the idea of having a brick wall built ,17 foot wide and 6 foot high across the bottom,and two walls built up the sides,these two walls would be 126 foot each ,then the measurements become more approximate than accurate ? (ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE) the two side walls would vary in height the closer you get to the patio area ,the walls would finish just short of the patio area . starting at the bottom of the garden the sidewalls would be 6 foot high for 20 foot length then 5 foot high 20 foot length then 4 foot high 20 foot length then 3 foot high 35 foot length then 2 foot high 30 foot length to patio area ,ground level ? homeowners,terraced,side access only HELP ?
