Shaded area under trees
i have a problem in that I have a shaded area under trees. To utilise the area I turned it into a fairy garden for my niece. However, lack of interest by a 9year old has given me the opportunity to develop this area. The problem I have is that there is no earth under the tree, it’s just root. As a short term measure I’ve bought a huge terracotta pot and put a selection of hostas in it. The garden is being landscaped in the autumn or spring of next year and I’m probably going to move the path over a bit so that it uses the dead area. Should I put a raised bed under the tree? Obviously not up to the bark. Has anyone any ideas?
