Hi I live on the MS Gulf Coast and am planning an extravagant english garden for spring, would love people in southern mississippi to tell me what grows well for them, I live just a block off the beach in Ocean Springs. I want to know what you grow sucessfully as far as perennials, and bloomers.

Hi, mississippibelle. I don't have my yard yet, but will be moving into our new house soon. Meeting the landscaper next week to see what he's got planned. We'll be in Pass Christian, but the house Katrina took was in Long Beach, MS. We were close to the beach, and I loved my yard. I had sago palms, crepe myrtles, Indian hawthorne, grey juniper, fatsia, holly, etc. During the summer, I had lovely yellow shrimp plants, impatiens, angelwing begonias, vinca/periwinkle, etc. Winter consisted of tall snapdragons of every hue, pansies, etc. After renting in a crummy complex for the last two years, I am so ready to get in my own yard and try new things, as well as old. What are you planting for fall bloom? Look forward to hearing from you.
