    The black eyed Susan’s grow wild here in east Texas they are thought of as weeds Neumann people are allergic them around here.

  2. Terra on October 11, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Wow, such good information. Thank you so much. I am knew to starting out any sort of garden right now & dream of a cottage garden as well. My goal is food, flowers & herbs and live in NW Montana. I believe this is close to the same zone as you are in. I believe we are zone 5-9? I get lots of snow and have lots of wild life through out my yard all year. Deer, bunnies, various birds, lots of turkeys and from time to time we get the neighbors cows & horses lol. This is a great channel full of great ideas. I am learning how to make fresh arrangements as well. We have 5 1/2 acres full of various green & pine trees and a huge front and back yard that is almost 1/2 acre, so this is wonderful information to help figure out how to start and what will grow and be most wildlife resistant. I guess 50 isn’t to late to start, right? Thanks again! Appreciate your channel so much.

  3. Marilyn Egli on October 11, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Loved this video 😊What area are you in? What zone is Iowa?

  4. Linda Badger on October 11, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    What are the purple & white flowers you put in the circle around the pedestal with the Russian sage Denim & lace and the tater tots? I don’t want to have to dead head them like an annual petunia.

  5. Melissa M on October 11, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    This was super helpful. I planted Rudbeckia, Echinacea and Heliopsis and none survived. I live in zone 7 and in TN have clay soil. I bought them thinking they would come back next year but they didn’t. My Rudbeckia turned black this year. I don’t do anything special except plant them with Miracle Grow plant soil. The Echinacea starts to look pathetic and has turned brown in June. Yours look beautiful and they seem to get better every year. Thanks so much for the information. The flowers are beautiful.

  6. Sandie Sing on October 11, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Are these perennial floral plants compatible to the Zone 9-10 California weather?

  7. Beverley Wheeler on October 11, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    I love watching your videos. They are so very helpful. I have most of the vistas you’ve shown and I love all of them but I have a blue mouse ear and I really love it and it’s so small. I just found out this year that they can be planted in pots and they grow back every year. I love that idea lol

  8. Joshua Drummer on October 11, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Prettiest girl on Youtube, seriously

  9. Yanni P on October 11, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Great video, Laura! Which zone are you in? Just wondering about your temp.

  10. - on October 11, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Where are you located? Somethings that grow well in your area may not grow well in other areas. Are you in Texas? If so, what part of Texas?? Thank you! I really enjoy your videos, and I always learn something from them. 😊

  11. Robin on October 11, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Laura, I was recently told that Canada’s and the US’ zone numbers are not the same. Could you clarify? It’s something like zone 4 in the US is zone 5 here. in Montreal we are considered to be in zone 5a. We grow all the plants that you profile. But our growing season is shorter, more humid and temps that reach lower 80s.And our soil pH is alkaline.

  12. Neuza Aissa on October 11, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Less talk more showing!!! Boring!!!

  13. saby8765 on October 11, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    I have no idea when you say zone 4-9 or something like that. Your garden is spectacular 😃

  14. Cate on October 11, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    is it possible to speak a little slower for ‘hard of hearing’ gardeners😊

  15. Syd Carpenter on October 11, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Sedums and echinacea are NOT deer resistant. All the many varieties I used were the first to be eaten. In fact they are favorites of the deer that visit my garden. My lemon jade sedum were chewed to the ground their first season.

  16. Brenda Smith on October 11, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Thank you for sharing. It is always a pleasure to watch your vedio’s. Your home place is just beautiful.

  17. Bonnie McCormack on October 11, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    That giant hosta was advertised as a komodo dragon 🙂

  18. Purple Lady on October 11, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Please do a video on zone 9 plantings that flower and put up with the heat 90-110 degrees in summer not so much frost.

  19. Kristine Meints on October 11, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    What IS your zone?

  20. joe massey on October 11, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Hostas……….lce cream for deer

  21. Marshall Burgess on October 11, 2022 at 8:02 pm

  22. Linda Duncan on October 11, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Great video Laura! So much useful info! Thank you! I’m going to start a shade garden and I’m so excited to find some of the plants you’ve suggested!

  23. Marie Ann Sparling on October 11, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Hi Everybody. I am from Ontario, Canada, (my lifelong home & birthplace), & I wanted to send you all this important message. I want to inform you & others world-wide of a very dangerous plant. The Loosestrife Plant.

    As beautiful as they may look, they are actually a very poisonous & therefore a very dangerous plant. They multiply faster than a dandelion, & quickly overpopulate everywhere they grow. They are more poisonous to animals as they will easily cause severe indigestion, bloating, & then death in all animals that eat it or come in contact with it.

    My father (George) & all of his railway co-workers up here, were always ordered to get rid of all types of loosestrife plants on their employers properties (ONR – Ontario Northland Railway). Dad said that they had to wear masks, gloves & special suits that covered all areas of there bodies from head to toe. They then had to pull out these plants (roots & all), & bag them, & then dispose of them. Then burn all grass, brush, etc… in that area of where those plants were, in the hopes of eliminating any chance of them re-growing.

    Please, let others know about the dangers of this plant; & do whatever it takes to have your local government officials take this issue seriously.
    We need to protect all of our food sources: all cattle, animals (pets), & other plants like wheat, etc… from being poisoned by this deadly weed/plant.

    Thank you for your time. All the best in life & health to you all.

    I so love your enthusiasm! So many people don’t get how much I love my garden!!

  25. lenora ogle on October 11, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    I love your viedos!!! I have a question, why aren’t my Day Lilies blooming more than one are two blomes at a time and the blooms aren’t on long stems? I have several varieties and not many blooms on any of them. Thanks!!!

  26. VeeLee Productions on October 11, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    at 4:48 what is the deep red under the tree. I was guessing red head coleus. can you tell me plz ..love your gardens!!

  27. 666PolecatsFun 4Life on October 11, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    …my girlfriend always has lady bug larva on her verronicas 😉 😜

  28. Carol Milburn on October 11, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    What is the zone you live in?

  29. Sage Premoe on October 11, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    My hostas leaves are turning crispy brown. Could the soil be is too acid (they’re under a pine tree) or am I watering too much or too little?

  30. Melissa on October 11, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    Saved this video!!!

  31. Candette Corman on October 11, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    All the bulbs you are ordering are so beautiful. Sent your video to my neice. In S Carolina. She has 4 acres half are pine tree shade and other is full sun. I got the ok from her to plant on her property. Going to have fun. Hopefully I can teach my neice gardening tips.

  32. Desert Crone on October 11, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Thank you so much for this!! I’ve moved from the Arizona desert to the Puget Sound and have struggled to find perennials to fit the sometimes narrow, sometimes huge spaces. There are lots of established azaleas and rhododendrons but once they’ve done their thing I’m left with a yard full of green bushes. I long for color but waste so much time looking at plant sites I get bogged down with perennial vs annual, shade vs sun, plant sizes, and Zone eight — I just go in circles. You’ve made it easy for me and I’ve learned a plant that’s always on my list because of its color will work here, AND you’ve helped me with that narrow spot in the shade. You’re my hero!!

  33. vald53 on October 11, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    I enjoy all of your videos, and greatly admire your knowledge of so much gardening information. Thank you.

  34. Edytha on October 11, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Those pine trees are beautiful… I never been able to get them to your category

  35. conniedayactress on October 11, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I have a question. The leaves of a lot of my bushes and trees have become yellow this summer. There are also some black dots in the yellow leaves. What is this disease that has hit my trees and bushes?

  37. Muktha Tumkur on October 11, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I hope GA does more videos like this. I have bought most of my plants based on GA recommendations. However, last year, I bought six Fall in Love Sweetly and planted them in two different locations on my property, and they all died. Fortunately, I bought them from a nursery that offers a warranty and got my money back. Maybe the plant sensed that I didn’t love it!

  38. Ann Salatin on October 11, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    I love your enthusiasm. I always want to buy plants, seeds and get my hands dirty I the garden after I watch you channel. Keep advising us on options for our regular Flower Beds.

  39. Lino Andrade on October 11, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I just ❤ perennials!!

  40. Lely Benito on October 11, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    This video was awesome. I’m starting a goth black garden and you have awesome knowledge on where and which to pair with.

  41. Jan 2020 on October 11, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    What State do you live in? Some of these plants do not pertain to my area. Thanks for letting me know.

  42. nancy nasrawy on October 11, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    You forgot Cana ( my favorit ) they are strikingly beautiful and hardy. They come back year after year. Even the leaves are beautiful.

  43. Frisbee Freer on October 11, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    I LOVE Bruna Silver Hearts!!! It is fun to watch this as it is obvious how much you love your plants!!! Thank you
