About the ground nut at the beginning of this discussion:

Thanks for the follow up on the weed! It's always comforting when a response starts with 'Whoa' (LOL). I've had this weed for probably at least ten years and if I wasn't so OCD about my perennials, this weed would wrap around everything. I always dig down as deep as I can without disturbing the adjacent perennials in the area, to dig out the bulbs. I'll look forward to hear from your readers, BUT I've got a feeling to just be persistent and one day the next owner of this house can deal with it ;-)  Thanks for your response!

In your webinar on Soil Prep you mentioned using seaweed in the garden, would pond water weeds work, too?

In Topic: Planting under Norway Maple by Spruce

14 May 2020 - 07:21 PM

I watched your webinar "Improving the Older Garden"  and got some wonderful ideas.  However, I'm still not sure how to deal with my "shade" bed. Mine has 2 huge oaks and a maple. The ground is mainly roots, although I've managed to put some hostas in there. This bed is along the road. Would be nice to improve that area. I guess I could pull all the rocks away that I have bordering it and build it up some more?

Advise if you can.  Thanks.  - D.T. -

I feel like Appollo 13. I can't go buy stuff because of covid19 so no way can I build a greenhouse...
