Question about lasagna gardening
With a lasagna bed, since the top layer of your bed is still in a state of decomposition, how do you know how deep to place your plants? Seems like they could easily end up by next winter with their crowns exposed to the cold. Or if planted too deeply, get crown rot.
I'm asking because I have a bed that I started piling materials on last fall, with the idea of tilling the materials into the soil in the spring, and planting. Well, I was working overtime in May, so no time to do it then, and all this month we've gotten so much rain, the bed is still very wet. It just rained again yesterday. I'm not going to be able to till any time soon - I don't think it's going to dry out that quickly, but I've got all these plants waiting to go into that bed, all the while the temps are getting hotter and hotter. I'm getting very anxious to get these plants planted (many of them roses). But since I know the stuff on top will continue to break down, I wouldn't know how deep to plant them.
If I can understand how to do this, maybe I can get this stuff planted and skip the tilling part.
