Walnuts and Onions, Oh My!

This morning in the garden saw me doing a few little jobs, mainly  weeding, a little light pruning and some general tidying. With it being autumn most of my plants are winding down and so the amount of mess in increasing.

I also have one bigger job. I wanted to repot my Walnut tree. Now, I have to admit that the Walnut didn’t actually need to be repotted because it was pot bound. No, it was because the damn thing keeps falling over!
I know it’s not the best time of year but so far it has fallen over just about every day. No matter where I put it or anything I manages to catch the wind and throw itself at the floor.

The pot you see in the above pic is one I made up from soil from my compost bin, topped off with a little bit of soil taken from an old pot that has been sat around doing nothing.

So I took it out of its pot and had a check on the soil. All good. Note that it’s not pot-bound, and in it went.

The plant is now sat beside my rapidly reddening Blueberry, in a sheltered area.
Yes, in this pic it is leaning at a slight angle. No matter how I tilted it in the pot I just couldn’t get rid of it. So I turned it a little in the hopes it straightens itself out.

Fail on my part. *sigh*

One other thing I noticed today. One of my spring onions that I left in the ground has re-sprouted! O.o
Not sure what to think or do with that one. There is only 2 in the ground so I’m not worried about ‘losing’ it. Maybe it will grow even bigger?
Maybe I will grow my own Triffid. My plans for world domination come together!
*Insert maniacal laugh here*

  1. Our local garden ctr has foot long wooden stakes they are 1inch thick by 2inches wide…take something like this, cut notches in them tie a long cotton fabric strip from one stake to tree then a 2nd stake,tree, n 3rd. Then pound stakes in ground like a tripod. Keeps the little tree straight strong n tall. FYI don’t use string-it can cut the little tree.😂
