Planted small trees, what to grow in between
Hi, I've been redesigning the layout of my garden and decided to plant some trees to give height and some interest, however the ones I could afford are very small, about 2ft in height, so really need to fill the bare space between them with something until they're a bit bigger.
Trees are rowan, hazel, crab apple, bird cherry and a silver birch (I know, they're a mixed bunch but all native and wildlife friendly.
I thought maybe heathers/low shrubs but worried they would suck all the nutrients/water away from the baby trees. Thought maybe bulbs/annuals for a couple of years as there will be no shade. Any advice?
