Trees to Plant

Once we've got the pool finished off we've got all these trees to plant. We bought them about 7 weeks ago when the nursery was having a sale. Farmer Phil made up a corrugated iron enclosure to protect them from the wind and we've been hand watering them ever since. The plants include 8 Manchurian pears for around the pool, 3 silver birches, 4 olive trees, 8 willow myrtles, 5 liquidambars, a gorgeous lemon scented gum, 12 crepe myrtles, 8 chinese maples, and more coastal rosemary for around the pool perimeter. We'll be busy getting all these planted and the watering system set up too!
