plant ideas for an 'American Heritage' garden
I am a fifth grade teacher in Peoria, AZ and I have a raised bed that available to develop a small garden (8 x 8 feet). I wanted to put in plants that were significant in American history -- especially the 17-18th centuries.
Of course, we have the challenge of the desert sun and heat - so I wanted use plants that would have a chance in our climate during the school year.
Any suggestions for plants or if you could point me to any resources that could help would be appreciated. Thanks!
