Suggestions for how to choose plants?

jmcn608April 28, 2013

I am a complete noobie and know nothing about gardening except how to dig a hole. I would like to add some plants to my yard but have no idea what to choose! Is there any sort of 'plant database' out there where I can input sun, height, width, deer-proof, idiot-proof, and it give me some plant choices? Thanks!

When I was getting started, I leaned on the Monrovia website a lot. Their pictures are kind of small, but you can search by lots of different characteristics to see what's available.

Happy hunting!
