I'd avoid another potentially large tree or trees in a confined space.

That will be what's sometimes sold as a cornfield mix. Poppies, cornflowers, annual chrysanths, corncockle,

Gardengirl, are you planning an annual wildflowers mix or a perennial grass and flower mix?

I've heard of it being sold as something you can unroll. If i had a packet of seeds and a patch of soil I'd sow them in it.

Do the leaves that are still there look healthy?  

If you get a harsh spell in winter all sorts of evergreens will become 'semi-evergreen'

They like a baking, so they don't want smaller plants over the bulbs. They like it dry and do better when the bulbs get crowded so don't split them up
