    What to do with tree stumps? Plants to hide?

    What to do with tree stumps? Plants to hide? 18th Jul 08 at 10:36 AM
    We've just moved home and one of the first things we've done is had 6 huge conifer trees cut down that were very close to the house. We're now left with 6 tree stumps in a row at the front of the front garden. I got a quote this morning for having them grinded down and it was £180. Our budget for doing the house up is spreading very thin and other safety issues in the house are more important.

    I had wanted to put some sort of pivet hedge or easily prunable bushes where the trees were to give some privacy to the house.

    Is there anything that for now will grow around the stumps to hide them?

    Does anyone know how long it takes for tree stumps to rot?
