My garden has been split in two: a flower section, and a large herb garden with a couple tomato plants, berries, and grape vines.
I grow a lot of bulbs in my flower garden. Whenever I plant seeds, I tend to pull them up as soon as they've sprouted, mistaking them for weeds. Bulbs are unmistakable, and produce beautiful fragrant blooms.
This is the first year I've really tried to grow vegetables, but I'm having fun experimenting.
Check out these sites. They're some of my favorite to order from when planning my garden, and most offer free catalogs:
Swan Island Dahlias
Brent & Becky's Bulbs
McClure & Zimmerman
Van Engelen, Inc.
John Scheepers, Inc.
Totally Tomatoes (obviously, that's what they sell--tons of heirloom varieties)
and of course, Burpee's
