You need to determine the amount of sunlight that your little garden space receives.
Full sun is considered 6 or more hours of sunlight.
Partial sun is 3 to 6 hours, and less then 3 is partial sun to shade.

You will want to make the correct selections for success.

Also you will want to know the growing zone.
Here is a link to help you correctly identify your zone.

Perennials are plants that will return each year and annuals generally have one growing season.
Shrubs whether evergreen or flowering can add a good backdrop or mix well with both perennials and annuals.
