Nearly Time To Leave

It is nearly time for the TreeProject seedlings to head off to be planted, so today I spent some time with them, getting a final count, trimming roots if necessary, and just generally making sure they are OK.

Here's what the manna gums (Eucalyptus viminalis) look like now:
They are quite tall, but it is interesting that after having their roots trimmed a couple of times, most of them have stopped growing roots outside their pots.

Here's how the wirildas (Acacia retinoides) are going:
It's like having a forest in your back yard. But soon they will leave to be planted out somewhere in central Victoria. I'm hoping to go with them and see them settled into their new home.
