Shrubs, shrubs and more shrubs



We enjoyed planting our shrubs and will look after them well. First we had to get the shovel and dig a hole then we cut the plastic off the plant. After we tickled the roots means so the roots had a chance to grow before we put it in the hole. Once it was in the hole we filled it with dirt to the top and patted it down with our feet. We will water them every day unless it rains so the rain can do it for us and some sunshine and they will grow big.

We had a great day planting all the shrubs. I'd love to come back in 20 years time and see what they look like. I've still got dirt under my finger nails!

I'm pleased you all had fun planting those shrubs. Don't forget to look after them and not tromple them when you are running around and then all of your children will be able to enjoy them when they are at Appleby School in Miss Kings class!

I think I will be a hundred years old by the time that happens. Imagine Miss K teaching children of children at Appleby now. That would be just too scary to think about.
