How and what to plant under a tree

what to plant under a tree You are not stupid enough to want to set up a garden under a mature tree. It is natural for a gardener to close his eyes and turn the hard earth, rare weeds, and bud roots into a shady corner with hostas, astilps, and jack-in-the-pulpits. Nature is good when it comes to gardening. As with many endeavors, there is a right and wrong way to set up a garden under a tree.
