planting a meadow under apple orchard?
I have a dozen or so semi=dwarf Macoun apple trees adjacent to my perrenial border. I have been thinking about turning the grass and weeds under the trees into something nicer.
I have thought about naturalizing some bulbs, daffadils, snowdrops, encouraging my already rampant for-get-me=nots and corydalis(rampant in other parts of the garden, but not here).
What other suggestions does anyone have?
Will I need to do anything special to the soil, etc. Reading some of the posts, I am a little worried about the existing weeds. We have that awful sticky weed. If we keep the area under the trees mown, there are obviously fewer weeds, but its a bit boring.
Thanks for any help and ideas
