Long time reader, first time poster.
My wife and I live in Hoboken, NJ. We rent an apartment with a small concrete backyard which our landlord has graciously given us permission to container garden this spring and summer.
In planning the garden, we have decided to grow tomatoes, peppers, potatoes and the new Burpee On Deck Corn for containers. We also want to beautify the ugly slab of white concrete with flowers everywhere: flowers in the shade, flowers in the sun, flowers in all corners, in an attempt to make it more appealing, comfortable and friendly on the eye.
With that, I have two questions. In prepping for a trip to the nursery, can someone recommend to these flower newbies here 1) a plant which will cascade over the side of the container and 2) a flower which transplants well which is full of bright color?
Thanks guys and gals! We appreciate the suggestions! I will try to snap a photo of the backyard and add to this later so you can see just how dreary it truly is. Any and all color will make it much more appealing.
