Is there anything more challenging to a flower gardener than a narrow planting strip? Particularly if it is bordered on one or both sides with concrete. OUCH! HEAT, FEET, STREET!….. all calamities for a sweet little garden. BUT…..not to worry. There are plants that will gladly come to your rescue. Now, I apologize for being somewhat exclusive to my own region, but I don’t know where you live. You do though Just find the plants that are most conducive to your area.
