GARDENERS at an East London estate joined in a record breaking attempt to plant the largest number of trees in an hour.
Volunteers planted 20 beech trees at the water garden alongside the Regents Canal and on the Cranbrook estate as part of the Tree O' Clock event on Saturday.
Children also helped plant tulip and daffodil bulbs at the estate off Roman Road in Bethnal Green.
The event was organised by green charity Thames 21 which brought along its underwater camera so gardeners could also marvel at the aquatic life on their doorstep.

The charity's East London community underwater project officer Ben Fenton said: "It was fantastic. They saw roach and rudd and at one point a massive pike swam up which we could see really clearly."
Thames Water funded the day which also gave people the opportunity to enjoy free fishing lessons.
