Hi, this is Jim Tarr with Glover Nursery, and today we'll be talking about a front door flower bed. On a front yard doorway planting bed, our example today will be using a stepping stone path and a small courtyard area. We'll be planting some evergreens as well as flowers. I think it's important any time you do a front door area that you have something - especially for the inner mountain area - where you have evergreen. Something that's going to give you some color and texture in the wintertime. Then you can always complement those using lots of summer flowers. We're going to want to use flowers that go in spring, summer, and fall. That way we'll have some color year round. On this small entry area, we have a doorway here, a very simple L-shaped building, stepping stones--just like we have down below us here--and I've used some evergreens. In this case, we're going to use a Hick's yew, which we'll see a little bit later behind me. And these three yewannamas. Those are evergreens. So that can be the basis for our flower garden. To complement our evergreen shrubs we have in the plan, we're going to be adding some perennials; some perennials that bloom in spring, summer and fall. To my right here, we have a great one. This is coneflower. This will bloom a good part of midsummer and fall. We have the phlox. This will bloom also in midsummer, and the sedum. This one happens to be autumn joy. This will be blooming in the fall. If we put all these together with the evergreens, the spring summer and fall perennials, we should have a really nice all-season front door garden. This is Jim Tarr, and today we've talked about a front door flower bed.
