Instead of creating a planter inside the tree stump, place a large planter on the top of it, like the one pictured here by Barbara Wise. What better way to repurpose a fallen tree, than to give it new life and extended beauty?
Don't let those tree stumps go to waste! Creating a planter in the stump is just one of the options.
Tree stumps are microhabitats for wildlife: they support bats, beetles, birds, and assorted lichen, moss, fungi, and ferns.
As the stump and roots decay, they create perfect nesting places for birds and an abundance of food, as insects move in to feed on the decaying wood. Set aside an area in the landscape and let nature take its course by allowing leaves, limbs and fallen trees to accumulate and decay naturally.
"Natural Home Gardeners, get ready to brew your very own composted manure tea! I did and all of my potted herbs and plants are loving me for it." ~Pamela Kimsey
Just like Pamela, I've become a big fan of this tea for my own container gardens, as well as those of my clients - and I am trying new ways to use it more often. Most recently, I've begun using it to soak the roots of Amaryllis bulbs before potting them up for the holidays, and then I use the tea to water them once they start to grow. I'll be posting pictures of the results, so stay tuned.
