Does this make a good place for Hosta garden?
Hi! We had to limb up these trees last year and it seems to me that this might be a perfect place for a hosta garden! I've been watching that area at different times of day, and it seems like there is enough shade.
I've read that if you want to make a planting area under any tree all you need is 4" of top soil. Right now there is about 4" of mulch there and just eyeing it up, it seems skimpy for a garden.
Will I need to consider going between the roots when planting? Would 6" or so be better? I'm concerned about smothering the roots, they have been under the canopy for years with little over them.
Has anyone done this? Any thoughts? Thanks!
