Under trampoline plants?

That looks good. Amatuer Gardening suggested just laying bark but I am going to go with my instinct and try some wild flowers - see what works with trial and error

Under trampoline plants?

Hmmm thanks all. I have astro turf under the swings as the soil is so heavy and clay - turns to sludge with kids feet I also have it as a carpet in a living bamboo wig wam I have fashioned for the kids. Really do not want to astro turf the lot. Yes I would love to have sunk the trampoline ( thinking I could make the area a pond later) but too costly! I shall try to plant it up and see what happens - I wouldn't buy anything lol - just experiment with what I have and can propogate/swap etc etc. Will let you know how it goes. Franco - pics would be fab thanks

Hi all, We bought my son a large trampoline last year and it has been a great buy. However, the grass has died directly under it and it is a pain to mow the other areas. I was thinking of sowing a wild flower area under it but am unsure as to whether the flowers would prosper due to the lack of light. We have heavy clay soil and live in Scotland - so warm sunshine is not frequent Has anyone any advice as to how to make this area prettier? I don't know if a gravel garden underneath with alpines would work? Thanks in advance.

I sprayed my ZD with anti-fungal rose sepcific spray a few weeks after planting then again in the late summer and it has been fine so far.

I put in a Zephirine Drouhin last February and it is beautiful now - a thornless climber and has grown amazingly considering the cold wet conditions and the heavy clay soil we have here in this part of Scotland. The flowers are a beautiful pink and smell gorgeous - not too strong just perfect for my nose I love it so much I have just bought another and planted it yesterday and another 2 for the local primary school.
