Small tree stump in ground
I have front off street parking at the front of the house. At the side is a strip of earth about one and a half feet wide, next to the side fence.
Things grow there, bulbs and I planted a bush which seems to have taken last year. I pulled out a michelmas daisy plant which I did not like and saw a small stump looking like it was from an old plant, maybe a small tree. It is about five inches wide and I don't know how deep it goes.
I want to take it out as I think it would get in the way of any new plant I put there and it is taking up a lot of precious space. It is strong, I don't know why, maybe the stem has roots just like the tree did and I can't get it out, and the earth is not easy to dig deep enough and round it for me to get it out.
Can any experts advise what to do or should I just leave it there?
