Have a raised garden set-up from Bunnings. Planted some flowers, but they only survived for a short time. Seems fine roots from a very large gumtree have completely choked them to death. How can I stop this from occurring? Jogn
Have you considered moving the raised beds away from the gum tee? and siting them in a more suitable spot? You didnt post a photo so Im only assuming you set it up to close to your gumtree.
Some photos of your set-up would really help. Do you know what the flowers were? Were they perennials?
A large gum tree might cause issues with shade as well as the roots...
