Anyway I left you with ground zero I believe. Here is the tree I decided on to replace the liquidambar
|She is in flower can I hope for olives this year?|
My biggest concern is of course with the removal of the liquidambar is the nitrogen drawdown in the soil so I have decided to plant vegetables only for a little while rather than putting something new in and it suffering while the old tree breaks down. I expect despite all the blood and bone, cow manure I added to the soil the carbon from the ground down liquidambar stump is not going to be enough. So I will have to use a high nitrogen liquid on the plants.
I did a walk about and look what else is growing in the garden
|Two tall tomato towers|
|Finally the akeba has something to climb on|
|First time I have grown squash and they seem to pollinate easier than zucchini|
