Red dahlia, as nut says, plant things that will like your soil.....ferns, astilbes, hostas, acorus, carex, astrantias, aconitum etc
The soil is still craggy because it's cold n wet.
Not sure compost s the answer now.....cheap grit mixed into the soil before planting and then more added to each planting hole. ,
Try not to get too anxious right now
Do you know anyone who can give you a clump or two of any of the plants mentioned to give you a stsrt? I often give away large clumps of plants when I divide my stocks so maybe near you???
