Best to get it out.  Can you get some help to do it?  Just keep working around it.  Using secateurs to cut those roots that seem immovable.  Pulling, digging, cuttgng, levering ....eventially it will come.

I have never yet let anything beat me...plant, tree, shrub.  Stubborn determination wins in the end.

To plant there without removing it will just create problems.  Then,,when will be .....put plenty of goodness back into the soil before replanting.  

What's the weather like in your area?

17 degrees late morning.  Sunny and feeling very warm.  Clouding over but still nice

Fidget, yes.  Sit down and eat those chocs.  I've heard that  combination is very good at relieving pain .......hope you recover soon

Hiya punkdoc, ??ou should be back down here in Cornwall.  It's 17 sunny and dry.  Just come in for early lunch but I am hooooot.  

Yes I know what you mean about the robins following you around. ...move a piece of soil, lift a plant, and a robin is there almost on your feet.  Lovely isn't it Doc? 

Too late to plant bulbs?

Not too far from me is a house called Bin Robin.  Luckily the occupant looks too fat to  exert himself too much.

Morning everyone

Sunny here, dry and feels warm.  Prob all change later.  And lots of rain yesterday 

Will continue to cut stuff back today.  A conifer trunk, too big to carry far, needs to be burned.  Might leave that for couple more weeks though.
