Planting beneath oak trees can be tricky and you wouldn't want to harm your 100-year old trees! I'm going to refer you to your local University of McLennan County Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service office. Their Master Gardeners or staff would be able to best advise you: 420 N. 6th Street, Waco, Texas 76701 Office: (254) 757-5180, E-mail: Good luck!
