nice size area and it would be good to keep it acidic there, wouldn't it? Or do you want to make it more alkaline?
what you decide determines what plants do use there
garden compost, leaf mould..if you can get it, and ericaceous compost when you plant anything. Mixed in well with your soil. Everything mulched.....pine bark for example.
one fern I like is fhe japanese painted fern...it prefers more acidic soils.
Do you want to plant more rhododendrons? Dwarf varieties but lots of shrubs and perennials that like acidic soils
