Hi

We moved to Canada 2 years ago from London, England and bought a house 6 months ago.

I'm just getting to know some of the plants and climate here.

I have 2 blue spruces in the front garden. They are 12ft and 15ft tall.

They were an eye sore as they were blocking all the light into the house so i trimmed the branches from the bottom up to 6ft. It was also a security issue as I couldn't see if there was anyone standing or hiding behind the trees.

Its opened up the area but I want to know if there are any annuals or perennials I can plant underneath them. I don't want plant tall shrubs due to security reasons but I love flowering plants. So any advice would be welcome.

Thank you.
