Daffodils under a birch tree
Hi folks -- we recently moved into a place with a beautiful mature weeping birch in the front yard. I was hoping to plant daffs in the lawn under it (canopy isn't that thick, so they'd be getting about 6 hours of sun), but my generally-wise gardening father suggests it will be difficult for anything to thrive underneath a thirsty birch tree. Does this mirror with your experience? Is it foolhardy to plant bulbs under a tree?
