    Hi Amituregardener,

    As Ron suggested you could click around here. You will need to know your hardiness zone, sun or shade conditions and soil conditions to select plants. Adding lots of compost to the soil will help your plants to grow better and aid in water retention, improved texture of the soil and better drainage.

    You could also do some reading here. That way you will learn what plants are invasive, what does well in your area and plants to select that grow well for you. Of course native plants are always a great choice. Be sure to include your hardiness zone and state if you register.
