I am planning on planting trees densely on my urban lot. I want to grow annuals as well,at least at first. I am going with raised beds for a variety of reasons and I was wondering if having a raised bed adjacent to a tree would negatively affect growth.
I am actually hopeful it will do the opposite, keeping soil loose and trickling nutrients downward,sheltering trees from wind and buffering tempature swings.
I have tried this in one place ,very small scale, with a small raised bed next to a pear tree. The tree has grown well but has only flowered once, it might be getting too much nitrogen.
 
How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
