I have a chaenomeles against a wall, which has long been past its best and I need the space for raspberries. It has been cut down to the ground, but all efforts to dig/chop/lever the stump out have failed, due to the stony ground and proximity to the wall. Can I just leave it to rot and plant round it, or will it throw up new shoots forever more? And if not, any advice on how to get it out?!
