In planting my first garden last year near a tree (the only place it can
go), I discovered that it was almost impossible to dig where there were no
roots. Some of the plants still did reasonably well although I know they
were competing with the tree. This year I would like to put in a raised
bed. Should I cover the ground with something like gardeners fabric first
so the roots don't invade the raised bed? Thank you.
By doing this you will stress the tree by supress air movement to the
tree feeder root.
I will suggest using some large containers, put three stones under
each container to allow air movement and avoid the tree root to invade
into the containers.
Sorry for my bad English. :-)
