How to plant flowers

Hi,

I am new to the board. My name is Kam and I live in Sacramento, California.

We recently purchased a new house and want to plant some flowers in the front yard which is in direct sunlight, most of the day. We had some flowers in our previous home, but they always died. But here we have a sprinkler system, so I hope that helps.

I have a couple of questions:

1. Is there a good website that can show the correct way to plant the flowers.

2. What type of soil mix is the best. The ground in Sacramento is very hard.

I could use any tips and advice of my project!

Hi and Welcome [wayey] to the forum. You'll find lots of good,smart people here. Plenty of good advice too [thumb]
I always make sure when I'm putting plants in,that I put them in the ground at the same level they were in the pot. An exeption would be tomatos though,they do better if you bury most of the stalk. Others probably have more advice on both of these issues. We have some people here from Ca.,so maybe they'll stop in and help you out.
Glad to have you with us [flower] See you on the boards [wayey]

Hi,

I am not sure what plants/flowers to plant. I do not know much about plants. Does it matter? Are there certains ones good for the sun?
