My son is getting baptized in about 10 days. So I'm trying to get the lawn in shape for the lunch. Most local nurseries have not stocked plants yet but I was thinking about checking lowes for some spring annuals. What are the best ones to plant in the spring in North Carolina? Begonias? Pansies? Inpatients? What's the best way to plant? I thought of making a bed out of black cow manure and planting groups of plant in it? Hoping some if you can help.
