I'd like to start planning my garden for this year. It's small, approx. 7 feet from my sliding door to the back fence and 12 feet wide (I live in a townhouse complex). My sliding door faces East so the north side gets all the direct sun for approx. 6 hours and the rest is partial to shade. Any website suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Michelle, my garden is also a little one. Why don`t you just look in catalouges of plant delivery services and let you inspire of what you see?? Mix the colours, mix high plants in the back with small plants in the front, choose not only plants which are only green in summer so that your garden is not naked in the winter. Try and make some eperiments....that makes a lot of fun..... With sunny greetings, Sabine
