    Hi, I’m about to begin my second season on a no-dig raised bed.

    Earlier this year I cut off some of my bigger plants as close as possible to the ground. For kale and brussle sprouts this left a nice sized stock just at the surface, would you recommend leaving them or digging them out?

    Last year I dug holes for transplanting some stuff I potted on but this year I wanted to experiment with even less digging, so only ever dibbing to plant modules and leaving all the roots from last year. Let me know what you think.

    Regards,
    John.
