Re: Growing perennials under a tree
Larry, me too. I have a privacy fence that goes around two sides of a huge old maple. The fence needs some work on it, and I’d like to open it up some and add some shrubs and/or perennials on the south side of it. But the tree trunk is only about 20 feet from the fence line, and I suspect the ground is full of roots. Would it be ok to frame up a raised bed at the base of the fence, or would that also be bad for the tree?
