It is Finally Tree O’ Clock

Tree O' Clock

A bit late, BBC Tree O’ Clock was on the 5th of December 2009 (see  but for that I was unable to find any of the trees available. A week later I happened to be a in garden centre and I noticed a whole load of Tree O’ Clock trees looking all a bit lost and forgotten. They suggested I take what I wanted, and so I did. The next week, it snowed! So finally today, with a bit of ice still on the ground in places, I planted all four of the trees.
