Planting In A Hollow Tree Stump
I've been renovating a border and discovered a low, flat silver birch tree stump at the back of it when I'd cleared it. It's been there for years and half of it has rotted so it is now hollow. It's about 30 -35 cm in diameter. It's in front of a laurel hedge and shaded by a copper beech, so it doesn't get much light. I was wondering if it'd be possible to plant bulbs in it, snowdrops perhaps, or possibly a fern. It's not an eyesore and the new planting I'm putting in will hide it again eventually, but I wondered if it could be put to decorative use in the meantime.
