    Now in my garden in the tree-trunk circles of several trees flowers grow - it looks beautiful. Are there any vegetables that will grow normally under the shadow of the crown of an adult tree?

      The older the tree, the more the near-trunk circle becomes, and there is a natural desire to use the site under the crown more rationally.
      When preparing the soil for planting, remember the location of the root system of the fruit tree - at the base of the stem, you can dig up the soil no more than 5-10 cm, at the edge of the circle - up to a depth of 25 cm. When processing the tree crown from pests and diseases, it must be taken into account that chemistry will fall on plants in the near-stem garden.
      For planting, use plants with a small root system to avoid competition for the tree. Usually under the crown cultivated zucchini, pumpkin, cucumber, beets, sow parsley, coriander. It is also necessary to take into account the ability of plants to get along with each other, different trees create different conditions under their own crowns, their microclimate. For example, under the apple tree you can plant low-growing tomatoes, dill, radish, feather onions, lettuce, sorrel, basil. Under the cherry you should not plant tomatoes and strawberries. Only plum grass can be grown under the plum and cherry plum.
      The cultivation of tree trunk circles with a small area of ​​the plot is a good way out of “cramped circumstances” and a highlight of the garden.

    In the shade, the hosts feel quite well (they, by the way, like clay soil, so when they are planted, add clay to the wells), which will grow very quickly and grace the backyard.

    A little sun is also required for ferns and aquilegia. And still there is such an amazing shade-loving plant, as buduzhnik: it grows quite high, pleases the eye during flowering (it has very attractive yellow flowers).

    The lover also does not really need the sun. His beautiful carved and fragrant leaves are not only decorative, they are also added to various pickles and marinades (according to the beliefs, this plant has the ability to drive away evil spirits from the house). In the shade are also well-grown bahtan and creeping ground-grass weed grass, used in folk medicine.
    Well, finally, really, what is bad about spruce? It miraculously refreshes the air. Its trunks can be beautifully garnished with stones, and the branches and top of the head with time to stop to give the desired shape and to avoid their "gigantomania."
    By the way, many summer residents recently for some reason or for no apparent reason have taken to the pines, they see in them the cause of many troubles.

    Maybe it's a tree in the garden and it seems to someone nonsense, but, in my opinion, only from a lack of imagination and elementary taste.
    What pine can really do harm is only to the roof and power lines, if it grows near them. And even if it grew very high. Here it is just necessary to topple it.

    In general, if we talk about coniferous trees, then, in spite of all their dignity, one should not especially get involved in their planting on the site. If, say, a house of a small size, then, surrounded by pine, larch, fir or cedar, it will seem small and will get a sullen look.

    Yes, and the damp from the solid wall of green branches can appear. However, this is a matter of taste. You decide.
    And here is how I approached this question. In photo 1 you can see a pine tree that my husband brought back from the forest and planted in a well-maintained front garden. I think she looks very good among flowers and flower beds.

    When we planted ornamental trees on the site, they did not think about the fact that in the course of time the bare trunks of grown plants completely ruin the general appearance of the site. Tell me how to use these voids? Plants with which root system can be planted in the near-trunk circle, so as not to damage the tree itself?

      The stock of young trees (younger than 5 years) is desirable to be kept under black steam, that is, the soil must be loose and clean from weeds. Later this plot of land can be removed - sow the grass (fescue fescue, runaway grass, clover creeping) and regularly undermine them. Another way to make the near-range circle attractive is mulching.
      As a mulch it is desirable to use natural materials: wood chips, crushed pine bark, pine and spruce cones, cedar nutshells. Such mulch is especially suitable for coniferous trees. It is undesirable to use shavings, sawdust, since when they decompose, the access of nitrogen to the roots is reduced. Before covering the near-trunk circle of mulch, it is freed from turf, weeds and covered with geotextiles. The layer of mulching material should be 5-8 cm.
      The most attractive are the trunk circles turned into a flower garden. Picking for such a flower garden plants, give preference to shade-tolerant crops (host, fern). Their root system must be superficial. From the spring-tinted subtrees, a periwinkle, a badan, a primula, a lily-of-the-valley, a lungwort, an anemone, a hellebore, a tulip, a daffodil and all the small-bellied flowers will grow well. In summer, the near-bar circle will be decorated with astilba and geranium. When planting, keep in mind that the suction roots of trees are located on the projection of the crown, in this strip it is desirable not to plant anything.
