4. Get Planting! So you have the plants, the spot, and the soil. Now the fun part begins! This is where you start planting your flowers, veggies, fruits, and herbs. You can have everything in a specific order or have a little fun mixing and matching the plant colors. If you don’t like it, later on, you can change things around. If you have annual flowers, each year can plant something different to liven up the space! Get creative and don’t be afraid to get a little dirty!
