wonderful crimson red leaves from mid summer to autumn.
First day for 10 days or so without sun
I "cover everything" except the stems. Never lost a dahlia yet and grow them large even in comtainers.

You need to consider you may have q problem there if you overplant with over vigorous trees.

Shredding and composting is the best thing to do to sort your neigjbour out.. get rid of him once and for all....oh! You meant the ivy
Amistad is a perennial and pretty hardy in most places.
Stems above the soil level ...only the tubers covered with compost. The top of the clump of tubers just below the soil and the rest of the tubers as deep as they go.

Yes Natalie, get em out
how about some winter heathers in there instead
salvia amistad would look good there too. Delightful purple blue flowers on 5' bushes all summer into autumn
