Q.It’s about palm trees
We have just had a very large palm removed from a flower bed in the garden I work at (I didn’t plant it lol). It was approx 30 yrs old. What can I do about the root net work so I can replant the bed?
Thank you for your help

I'm not familiar with how much rootball comes with a 30 year old palm tree but I imagine it's a lot and most needs to come out and the bed refilled with more soil. If a sharp spade doesn't do the trick, try using a pitchfork to loosen up the roots. You also can use a rototiller if you have access to one.
