Find the worksheet below. It is editable on SeeSaw
At this time of year, lots of tiny little baby trees (known as saplings) start to grow on the floor beneath bigger trees, where berries and seeds have fallen during the autumn. They are usually so small, that they're tricky to spot.
If you get a chance to get outside this week, keep your eyes peeled for saplings and if you can, dig it up very carefully, before planting it in a pot.
Saplings that are very small never grow very well under the mother plant because the bigger tree blocks out all the sunlight, so you will be helping a baby tree get a better start in growing!
Let me know how you get on!
