June 10th - Under the pine tree

Garden Note:

June 10, 2006 --The area under the pine tree in the front hasn't looked so hot. Nothing really grows there. I'm not sure if that's because the previous owners didn't plant anything there or just that nothing can grow there. Last year we had some vinka and some cone flowers and black eyed susans and it just looked kinda messy.

So we took some time early in June to clean the area out, thinned out the vinka where we needed to, planted some hostas, edged out the area, and re-planted the black eyed susans together. Then we found stones around our house and built a small barrier from the grass. I'm not sure if it will remain like this forever, but it's a good start.

Any ideas for what to plant under the pine tree?
