Stump Textures

A stumpery is a garden feature similar to a rockery but made from parts of dead trees.
A stumpery traditionally consists of tree stumps arranged upside-down or on their sides to show the root structure but logs, driftwood or large pieces of bark can also be used.
The pieces are arranged artistically and plants, typically ferns, mosses and lichens are encouraged to grow around or on them.
The first stumpery was built in 1856 at Biddulph Grange and they remained popular in Victorian Britain and are experiencing a resurgence in larger gardens
