from the soil???
ok, now, what about this one? want me to answer, or will you do the honors?
The process of decomposition requires a fuel source. That fuel source is Nitrogen.
Does that have something to do with the microbes that decompose the stump and roots using Nitrogen as a food source hence making it unavailable to the plants above (though I usually notice this more in lawns).
I remember seeing something about that on HGTV a couple of weeks ago.
Ding ding ding ding......we have a winner.... Although I was really looking foward to bobbygedds answer...
John----You wtch way too much TV...you should be out working...
glan stole my answer. no, not really. i didnt know.
If you mulch planting beds with any "organic" hardwood mulch or any wood product. The soil will be depleated of NITROGEN.
NITROGEN is the FUEL source for decomposition
So why would would you think the stump is any different?
Im not sure what you mean by this......I do believe a rotting stump removes precious N from the soil. (See my other threads about planting on top of tree stumps.)
typing skills? whats wrong with my typing skills?
