That brings up a dilemma. I have a planting under a group of dogwoods. Not
technically a mass planting, since the hostas are all different. But I do
want it to be a groundcover planting. Problem is, how to judge how close to
plant things.  After three years, nothing is as large as advertised (though
they look healthy enough), so the spaces aren't filling in. So, do I put in
stuff between the established plants? Or move the existing ones around? or
just do nothing and be patient?
