Plum Tree

Today Mrs Leeson gave Hamilton East School a plum tree to plant in the Kitchen Garden. 
We planted it behind the dental clinic because one day this could be a great orchard area.

Look at the roots of the plum tree.
Thankfully Dugan had dug a hole for us earlier. We put fertiliser in when we planted it. This will help it grow faster. Then we piled more soil in the hole.

Mrs Leeson had thought of everything, not only, did she have fertiliser she also had worm juice. We mixed this in with the water to help the plum tree grow stronger.

Look at gorgeous Room 14 with the new plum tree for our school.
Here is a vimeo of Room 14 helping to plant the tree.

  1. Wow! the slide show looks awesome. I think our tittle page looks bright and matches with our pictures. I think the photos are cool. From Aisha

  2. WOW!! That looks so cool but hard work. The roots are so huge. I wonder how big it will be when it gets bigger,and the tree is so big. I remember planting a mandarin tree with my family . It was big too. Now there are already lots of mandarins on it.

  3. Wow! Great job Room 14 planting the plum tree. Once I tried to plant a flower but my Dad threw it out. I wish when is the plums going to be ready to be eaten. Thanks for Mrs Leeson for giving us the plum tree to plant in our Kitchen Garden. I can see little shoots coming out of the plum tree.
