bird feeders in the garden
I'm wondering if anyone can suggest some low-growing perennials that might be able to survive under birdfeeders. I feed safflower, thistle, suet and yes, black oil sunflower seeds. The hulls have decimated the grass under them. I know about the toxins in them but I thought maybe either a woody perennial or small shrub might be able to survive and I might gain a pre-cleared, automatically mulched bed. Too much to hope for? It's a pretty sunny area . . .
