We have a 50 foot tall Walnut tree in the back garden and whilst digging some veggie beds have come across a 4 inch diameter root three inches below the surface - about 20 feet away from the tree. I am not looking to cut the root and happy to work around it, but, the area immediately around the exposed root has suddenly become very damp. Any suggestions why?
Many Thanks
