GARDENING - Jimmy Rockett showed us some spring time color. Jimmy says there are lots of new flowers like the variegated secresia and the dynamite fountain grass.Jimmy says one big tip is to make sure the pretty flower that you want is for your proper light requirement. So, you do not want to plant impatiens for shade in your flower bed that gets sun all day long. A little research goes a long way. Also, ask for help if you are not sure on the mature height that your flower grows. Some get tall and some hang over. So you would not want to plant one that hangs over in a flower bed or in the middle of your flower pot. If you have sun, these would do well for you with little maintenance. Jimmy says the bottom line is to just have fun and when you are done planting and like what you see, then that is all that matters, just have fun. For more information, call Jimmy at (205) 981-1151, email him at, or visit
