I'm nearing my college graduation, and am developing a serious gardening bug!
As a newbie-project, I would love to pot some purple/gold (yellow) flowering plants, with the hopes that they may be blooming during my mid-June graduation party.
Does anyone have suggestions on (preferably inexpensive species to start with) pot-able flowering plants that come in purple/gold, and might still be blooming in June? (I was thinking possibly pansies & marigolds but worry that it might be too late in the season?)
Also, soil type information would be very appreciated-- I have an over-abundance of rich, dark, composted manure.
