I have an apple tree which I have just planted with daffodils, chives and tulips. Chives and daffodils help suppress grass and the chives can help against apple scab disease. The flowers will help draw in pollinators. I have also planted comfrey as these have a long taproot which draws up some great nutrients from the soil. There is also red clover, mints, thyme, yarrow, blackcurrant, honeyberry and a dwarf peach. I am trying out the forest layering system, and have found some great info online, as well as tetimonial of how well it works. The biggest mistake seems to be planting too close. Good luck!
