HELP: Need Step By Step Instructions

Posted by penny1941 Ontario 5 (My Page) on

I bought a Dolphin frame which is about 32 inches long, this was 2 years ago, I tried stuffing it by covering it with chicken wire pieces, (don't no how many times I got cut), anyway I can't figure out how to fill it without the dirt falling through the holes. Also I am in zone 5, would anyone have any idea what plant I should use for this, also it would be in sun most of the day.
Please help me, I need step by step instructions, pictures would be nice too.
