We have a large yew stump in the middle of the area we hope to use for vegetables in our new garden. The stump is obviously still living as there are small shoots emerging from it. Is it safe for us to use the area for vegetables while the stump lives? I haven't come across any way of killing it which doesn't involve chemicals, which I am reluctant to use in a vegetable bed, especially as we intend to grow organically.
