I was recently told and you can Google it to verify, that walnut isn’t very good around some plants. Can kill some veggies. Aromatic Red Cedar has a natural insecticide but isn’t harmful to plants. Sawdust itself it fine around flowers, but not so much around trees can pack to tight and not let the soil breathe. Use shavings around them. All of my sawdust and shavings go for that. Also, as it decomposes it raises the acid level in the soil. Most plants will love you for that also!
