We have a pine tree in our garden ( a christmas tree planted by the prvious owners) we don't really want to remove it as until the trees we have planted grow it is the only thing of significant hieght in the garden. However the soil beneath it isn't fantastic for planting as it appears to be full of shallow roots. My husband wants to add soil creating a raised bed giving greater planting depth but will this damage the tree is it likes shallow roots? Would Pots be a better option? Also any suggestions what to plant under it?
