I am a relatively new homeowner and have zero experience with gardening. I have a flowerbed 18' X 4' where I have just have mulch over landscaping cloth as of now. I wanted to put some ground cover like perennial peanut to fill the entire flowerbed.
My question is, how will the perennial "spread" if the flowerbed is covered with landscaping cloth & mulch? I will only dig a hole wide enough for the root balls to be planted. How will the bed fill out then?
Do I need to remove the landscaping cloth?
Thank you for reading and hope some of the experienced people here can help me.
