I am looking also...

Hi. My name is Tricia. I am in Zone 7 in Tulsa, OK.


I'm not expecting to recieve all of this but it is what I am in search of at local nurseries unless someone gifts it to me for postage. I do not have anything to swap this year unfortunately since it will be my 1st season in many years. This is a rental house that I will probably be at for several years so I am investing a good amount but not so much as if it were a lifetime. Thank you for looking over my list and any considerations.

I am constructing raised beds in full sun, 4 ft by 30 ft give or take. I also have room in other areas almost all full sun but several shady spots too. I am planting an edible fruit, veggie, and herb garden as well as looking to fill in full shaded areas with ground cover, ferns, hostas, or anything that would look nice but not be poisonous for our 3 dogs. All of that is in the back yard.

For the front yard, the dogs will not be there so any plants would be good to fill in partial sun to most shady areas with hostas, various lilies, poppies, various flowers.

Also some various shrubs, trees, vines, etc for shade but mostly privacy along a chainlink fence in the back yard.

various types of lettuce, spinach, brocoli, cabbage, bok choy, Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Artichoke, Carrots, celery, cucumber, various onions, various corn (would love strawberry corn & blue corn), various garlics, small to medium pumpkins and gourds (mainly for fall decor), peas, green beens, mustard, Lima Bean, butter bean, tomatoes (especially smaller versions like jelly bean, grape, cherry, roma, etc), various hot peppers, bell peppers (especially red, yellow, & orange),

strawberries, other berries, watermelon,

Bergamot, Oregano, Primrose, St.Johnswort, Tarragon, Ginger, Sage, Mustard, Calendula, Cilantro, Dill, Lavender, Lemon Grass, Marjoram, Mints, Parsley, Rosemary, Thyme, Borage, wheat grass, alfalfa,

shady ground cover (non poisonous for dogs), moss, wisteria, red oak tree, hostas, various sunflowers, clematis, passion flower, purple hyacinth bean
