Q.We have a small walkway in front of our house and is lined with mulch. Recently my mother-in-law had her landscaper put in plan
ts without me knowing . As a result I pulled the plants from the mulch . Now I would like to know what I should plant as I know very little about gardening! I would like to know if I can plant in mulch and what type of plant to get here in Atlanta. I only took out about four plants so I don’t need a lot but then again I don’t know much!

You are in USDA plant hardiness zone 7b or 8a depending on your location in Atlanta.
