Ellie Dorritie, a retired postal worker in Buffalo, NY, says the full sun exposure in her planting strip allows her to garden with different plants than what she can get away with in her much shadier yard. Her garden scheme? "Cram it in," she says. "I ask, 'Does it bloom? Will it fight for space?' If the answer is yes, it goes in."
