    Maybe we get in to this at some point but while looking at plants I am trying to figure out if and if so what I might plant under a doug fir tree. The limbs are high enough that it does get some morning and afternoon sun, but not much mid day. I believe I am zone 8b, and will be mulching and composting but would prefer to find something that the tree will not kill (the tree is quite large).
    Thank you,
    Angela Martin

      Hey Angela!

      We don’t get into specific plant combinations – there are simply too many combinations that alone could be an entire course!

      Google and books are the best resource for individual plant information. You want to look for companion plants and plants that do not go well together.

      The sky is kinda the limit in most cases so be sure to look at lessons 4.4 and 4.5 in Track 1 about companion plants. and multi use plants for the concepts.

      The idea being that you want to choose planets that serve a function such as supporting the needs of the fir tree, supporting needs of beneficial animals or adding harvestable goods for you.
