Omg! There's a bed right underneath my kitchen window (Shady, in ZONE 5A - not too sure) and it needs HELP! I discovered last summer that the earth hardens really well and I tried to plant some dailiahs, but it didn't work out too well. The daffodils survive every year, but I think there's a lot of mud... It's shady too and I really don't know what to do about it - thought I would love to keep that bed there... Any ideas anyone?
