[NAFEX] Stump

Hello All,

 

Quick question.  Should a large, hollow stump be treated like a in-ground
planting, or an above ground pot?

 

Taking down a old apple tree has left us a large hollow stump about 2' high,
and an opening 18-20" in diameter.   There is about 2-3" of wood that
creates the natural planter. It's center is full of compost and soil.  The
tree was a Northern Spy which was over 100 years old.

 



 

Would the soil volume and connection to earth be enough to protect a
planting of blackberries in the old stump?  Or should annuals be put into
it?  Zone 5A.  Wild blackberries survive in the same orchard.

 

Thanks,

Tom
