Raising Soil Level in an Established Planting Bed
I have planted a large watering trough with daylilies and a thriving trumpet vine. The soil level has sunk 8+ inches below the trough rim; how can I raise this without damaging or killing my healthy plants?

Hi, Well this could be a tough one. If it were me, I'd lift the daylilies to add more soil since adding soil over their crowns won't be too good. Now, the trumpet vine will be more problematic, but I'd leave it alone and lift the soil nearby, but not right up against it's trunk. Trumpet vines are very tough and will probably be fine.
