It is possible to plant trees during the winter months, and the people at BBC Breathing Places, the Horticulture Trade Association, and Guinness World Records are teaming up to prove it on Saturday, December 5, 2009 between 11:00am – 12:00noon. In that one hour period, they hope to plant 653,143 trees for an event called Tree O’Clock.
HTA Promotions Manager Jennifer Thwaites commented “This helps demonstrate that you can still plant during the winter period. Trees provide many solutions in garden design, as well as the structure for other planting. They also provide habitats and a food source for birds and wildlife.”
What a wonderful way to promote both gardening and a green environment! Find more information about Tree O’Clock here.
