It will Sheila , we have another one in the garden planted when our grandson was born he is 13 this week making it a year older than this one and it is taller , I don't know how tall they can grow up to I looked it up in one of my books but it didn't state that fact !

Sticki the childrens like to know which is 'their' tree :o)
You should be expecting something to happen soon then Dawn , do you have a Handkerchief tree ? they are lovely......Thanks Brian and Dwyllis I liked the idea and I know the children do :o))

well its a great idea and how very lovely that they are interested too.

last year i sent a christmas card that included a tiny baby tree ~ i dont know if you have seen them ~ it was to a lovely lady who has 3 children ~ 2 of them got married within 3 months ~ i thought she might like to remember the year by planting a tree!!! she loved it.

Oh Yes Carole a perfect solution ( I have noted that it's Grandson ) Thanks Janey , we had one tree for our oldest Granddaughter at our last house/garden we had to dig it up to bring it with us when we moved ,luckily it survived and always flowers on her birthday .......

Stunning Autumn colour, it has grown rather a lot in 12 years, a lovely idea to plant trees on the birth of your grandchildren, we have a tulip tree Dawn it would be amazing to see a flower on it, we live in hope.

Hi Amy, no I havent got a Handkerchief Tree, hmmmm may have to look into it.

How long have you had yours Dotty? Looking out of the window at mine now and its glowing gold, lovely arent they.

Lovely tree, Amy...
It seems your grandchildren's trees are taller than they are !

Lucky they were both born at a good time of year for tree planting ... not in the deep snow ... or heat of the summer ..

Lol..
