Thankyou all for your advice. I've moved the stake so that it's pointing in to the prevailing wind. Hopefully it won't look quite like the tree above😄.

Because the roots are being rocked around? It's my first tree

Thankyou, I've knocked (I think!) the stake further in to the ground and tied it lower down. How fast can trees die ? Im really worried about it.

Thankyou for replying, I live on the brow of a hill and it's extreme windy today so I would sa y it is quite exposed. Does it make a difference what way the tree stake is leaning? I've got it kind of leaning away from the usual wind direction

 Am I using the wrong tree stake? It has moved and its pulling down on the tree. I phoned the tree nursery where I bought it from but they were of little help. It's so windy today. I planted it in march and I'm worried I'm killing it..

Six bags of manure added today😷, weeded the path . Need to start thinking about plants. There's a limited list of plants suitable for clay soil on the RHS website but I'm going to put in some plants of what's already growing ok in my garden. Any more suggestions would be welcome, especially for tall plants to grow in front of the concrete slab. Not sure if my bay tree (in the pot on the right) would like the soil.
