Daffs and Snowdrops in woods?
About 40 years ago I planted some daffodils in my woods and they have seeded themselves around while the clumps got bigger. In the last few years I've been moving a few clumps of snowdrops (and some chionodoxa seem to have hitched along) out there. I know these are not native plants but deer have grazed off most of the native wildflowers though there are still lots of jack in the pulpits and skunk cabbage. There used to be anemones and wild violets but these have vanished under the constant browsing. Now I'm thinking about moving some winter aconite too.
I just want a little color in spring but is this ecologically unsound? Or have my woods been altered past the point of return? I notice the ground is almost bare except for stunted multiflora rose (grazed to a few inches).
And there aren't any maple or ash seedlings as there used to be. I tried planting white pine but the deer killed them.
