have a cedar deodora tree in bed with bulbs and flowers all around it soil is always very hard and dry find it very hard to weed any solutions



The tree is taking all the moisture, though if you live in the south, we've had no decent rain for some time, so the ground is pretty dry if you've not been watering. Only answer is to water, I'm afraid, which will make it a bit easier, but I've no doubt the tree roots are pretty near the surface too, making it worse to weed around it.
