“Dear PoP,

I just moved down to the Washington, DC area and have a nice little rowhouse in Columbia Heights. We have a small plot of land, but unlike my place in NYC, I have a tiny little plot of land out front and a porch. I’d like to try my hand at gardening. I am curious if you or any of your readers have tips about gardening in DC. What flowers work well in this climate during the spring/summer/early fall? Where are some good gardening places to visit for supplies and meet fellow flower enthusiasts? Any general tips or inspiring gardens in the city I can check out?”

I know we have some dedicated gardeners who read this site so I’m also looking forward to learning what works best for DC?
