... Went to Highland nurshery and brought 5 plants - 3 bloodroots and 2 trilliums- Great White Trillums. The problem is that the soil is thick, black and sort of clumpy, its also in deep shade, some hostas and lilly of the valley grow there now, we're moving to the new place next weekend so far I have wild ginger, vargina bluebells and cloumbine planted in various areas of the garden. So far I just planted them in one by one without adding or doing anything to the soil because I'm on a budget and want as many natives as possible. Do you think I'll need peat moss or compost added before I plant the trilliums and Bloodroot or should I plant right away.. This fall I plan on covering them all up with leaves.

I know Wild cloumbine grows well in it.
