Woodland plants like foxgloves, ferns, epimediums, bulbs like anemones, snowdrops,and smaller shrubs like spireas, cotoneasters, pyracantha and hazel which I coppice for pea sticks, fill in between my trees and very beautiful they look too. There is a lovely philadelphus beneath my huge eucalyptus and a collection of ferns and foxgloves. The tulip tree has cyclamen coum underneath. The Mediterranean oak has brachyglottis beneath it. If you need the ground to be food productive under your trees, fruit bushes do well. You should see the blackcurrents, gooseberries, raspberries that grow under the trees in the Canadian Rockies.
