Hi everybody, I'm a gardener from a Zone 6b, New England region, and I have a question for an observing gardener.
I'm currently designing a garden and am trying to create a successional planting with Hostas, Ferns, Bleeding Heart, Astilbe (it's a shady corner) and a few others. Anyway, I'm wondering when the Hosta leaves are fully emerged and close to hardened off?
Basically, I'm wondering if I plant bleeding heart in between the Ferns and Hosta's if the bleeding heart will be up before the hosta or not? I would love to have some early colour, after the bulbs, to keep grabbing my eye.
