Raised vegetable bed next to a tree stump?
I recently had a fairly large old crab apple tree cut down and removed from the garden, and I’m planning to put a raised bed in the newly available space next to the tree stump. I know that in general it’s not a good idea to try to grow vegetables next to a tree, as the tree roots will compete for nutrients and water, but is there any issue with doing this now that the tree has been removed? I have read that the roots will slowly die and begin to decompose over a few years, but I wondered whether they will cause any issues in the meantime with veg growing above them? Any advice?
