Under Red Acer
Hi, thanks in advance. I am a complete learner and have a large red acer in a semi-circular bed out the front. The front is North-West ish facing and gets the sun in the afternoon onwards. Currently under the tree is a mass of a few years leaves, ivy and bindweed. Ive started to clear all that out but I need to fill the space (a good couple of metres diameter). ive done some reading and it seems the best bet are perennials which would have almost finished flowering now but no ideas of best ones. Would I still be able to get those now or is it best to put some bedding plants in for the summer and then have a rethink in the autumn?
