Trying to turn a black thumb into a green thumb..try..try..try... Any Advice on any of my plants is welcome!

I have a black thumb or at least had, now it's like a shade of purple, it's heading towards green. Try , try , try is my motto on this one, I ask a lot of questions especially to my local nursery, who are very helpful and even when I follow their advice to the tee, they give me a refund on my plant (1 yr warranty) if I am not successful. So far everything has lived through my thumb, except the Rhodedendron and still trying with the grass, we might just make it all a landscaped area, the grass has been tough for our conditions (shady).....will keep trying....Hummingbirds love it in the garden, and I love the noises nature makes while sitting on the deck or a hammock. Apparently I feed the fauna too, since bunnies, deer, chipmunks, squirrels, birds all come and find something to peck and munch on...Ahhh the circle of life.
