Answer: Although your plan looks good on paper, it won't work for the plants. They need much more root room in order to thrive. However, if you can chisel out an 8-10 inch deep planting hole somewhere in the top of the stump you can plant creeping thyme or creeping phlox in the hole and the plants will cascade down over the stump. Or, you can plant them at the base of the stump and coax and guide them up over the stump. Either way your stump will be covered with flowering plants. Enjoy your garden!
