This is my first try at any real gardening. The two mulched beds out front of my home were planted with pansy's, begonia's, senator pink begonias, alyssums, dark stars (my fav), angelonia's, a 3rd type of begonia and some existing hosta's and a tiger lilly. Everything that i planted doesnt seem to be doing well. I pulled as much weeds out of the beds as i could, planted, and mulched. They're in full sun all day. I'm thinking I probably should have purchased some top soil since the ground is mostly clay, though i did keep them in thier original dirt. I water them lightly daily -by lightly I mean enough to get the ground saturated without any ponding. The banana tree is in the back still in full sunlight and was already existing, however the two smaller ones i had found elswhere in the yard and attempting to transplant them to this bed by digging them out about 6 inches from thier base and tenderly pulling them from the dirt. These seems to dying also. The ground in this bed had been filled with top soil and originally had some type of decorative grass growing out of control. I planted Penta's and a marigold looking plants. I would love any pointers, suggestions, or scoldings from any of you seasoned gardeners! Thank you so much!!
