What to do with all these wet leaves?
I will make a nice blanket for my Banana Tree.
I will put a wire cage around it.
Then stuff all the leaves in there.
Just like a down comforter for my tree.
(Do you have any plants that need winter blankets?)
Sleep well Banana Tree, see you in the spring!
oh wyatt what a great idea, I wonder if my lime tree would like a blanket for the winter :)ReplyDelete
My mom loads hers up in the wheelbarrow and moves it inside when it starts getting cold in the fall.ReplyDelete
did you know that banana trees like to 'walk'. There are many many banana trees back in my Mom's home of Australia and on the plantation bananas move themselves a couple of inches each year looking for food and water in the soil. And did you know they call the side shoots "pups". They also love being watered from the top and back home many people plant them under a gutter down pipeReplyDelete
Awww your banana tree looks so nice and cozy!!!! What a good job you did Wyatt! <3ReplyDelete
Wyatt, you REALLY ought to have your own show on HGTV! I used to use my leaves in my cold frame/compost/volunteer garden. Great composting material!ReplyDelete
Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me
Excellent work, Wyatt. I don't have to make a down comforter for a tree but I will have to make a thick blanket for the vegetable garden pretty soon. If only the dogs would dig on command, they could dig up lots of compost from the chicken run.ReplyDelete
Wyatt, you are such a good boy. I surely could use you around here!!! WE have hundreds of strawberries to put in the ground and cover up!!ReplyDelete
Wow you really helped out that banana tree there Wyatt. Nice work!ReplyDelete
I'm impressed! You've done a good job. And the idea is great!ReplyDelete
Lots of love
You are such a thoughtful gardener, Wyatt. We hope your banana tree does well through the winter with that wonderful blanket you gave it.ReplyDelete

Wyatt....we lives in FLORIDA and can't even keep a bandana tree alive over da winter....and it doesn't even get dat cold here. Daddy gave up tryin' to grow one because every winter it went to Rainbow Bridge. Do you get any bandanas from your tree?ReplyDelete
We know your banana tree is thanking you, Wyatt!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch
Blimey Wyatt, we didn't even know some trees needed blankets. No wonder nothing seems to grow for poor mum. We try to help all we can. No worries, and love, Stella and RoryReplyDelete
You are the best recycler we know.
Nighty nite banana tree.
You are a very good helper, Wyatt. My dad could use your help.ReplyDelete
Holy Great idea!!!!! Wyatt you are the smartest dog out there!!!ReplyDelete
Our rosebushes and crepe myrtles get covered up with leaves, too. A banana tree sounds so exotic!ReplyDelete
wyatt you are so awesome! what a great idea!ReplyDelete
What an awesome tree!! I love it!! Is it just called a banana tree? Or does it really grow bananas?? Just curious.ReplyDelete
I thought you need the temperatures of the tropics to grow Bananas!!?? Good job with the re-purposing of the leaves!ReplyDelete
Tail Wuggles, Rubie
I never knew banana trees needed that kind of pampering....remember to make banana fritters!ReplyDelete
Wyatt, you are so good to your plants! That tree will certainly appreciate a nice leaves blanket over the cold winter!ReplyDelete
What a good idea, Wyatt!ReplyDelete

You sure are smart when it comes to plants!! We will have to keep this in mind!ReplyDelete

Waggin at ya,
Thanks for stopping by to wish me a Happy Day! :) Together we raised over $50 for my shelter. Wahoo!
Hey! That is awesome. I hear that the leaves will generate heat all winter and keep the tree roots nice and toasty.ReplyDelete
