    Do I have a contaminated patch in garden, and how to fix it?

    Perhaps the roots are still alive and kicking and using up all the water and nutrients. Our tree man used a stump grinder to destroy everything.

    It is more noticeable where I am this year because we have had such a wet winter and I think the extra water has fuelled lush growth.
