# Hello, my name is Mr Bloom and I'd like to come to see you soon

0:00:050:00:10

# I'm out on the road, you see, here and there, so that we

0:00:100:00:14

# Can get together and have some fun

0:00:140:00:17

# I'll help you out if there's work to be done

0:00:190:00:22

# So where is it you like to go?

0:00:240:00:26

# Call me up and let me know

0:00:260:00:29

# What is it you like to do?

0:00:290:00:32

# I'll pop along and do it too

0:00:320:00:34

# Cities, towns, the countryside I can travel far and wide

0:00:340:00:38

# I'm all about and everywhere

0:00:380:00:41

# I'm here and there

0:00:410:00:43

# Here and there

0:00:430:00:45

# I'm here and there. #

0:00:450:00:48

Oh, hello there, Tiddlers. How are you tiddling?

0:00:520:00:55

Mr Bloom here and I like going out and about.

0:00:550:00:58

Yeah, I like going here and there and doing lots of fun things

0:00:580:01:02

and finding out about new places

0:01:020:01:04

and I've been wondering what you like to do where you live.

0:01:040:01:08

Perhaps you like to ride your bike in the park

0:01:080:01:10

or go for walks in the woods with your family?

0:01:100:01:13

ROUTE FINDER SOUNDS

0:01:130:01:15

Brilliant. Someone's got in touch. Shall we see who it is? Yeah.

0:01:150:01:19

I'm Beth and I like being outside with my family.

0:01:190:01:23

I like cycling with my brother and sister.

0:01:250:01:29

We go to lots of different places.

0:01:310:01:34

This is Callendar House and it looks like a fairy castle.

0:01:360:01:41

I also get to ride my bike to school.

0:01:430:01:47

Have fun now. Bye! Bye!

0:01:510:01:55

That's Callum and Amy.

0:01:550:01:58

Come visit us, Mr Bloom.

0:01:580:02:01

THEY CHEER

0:02:010:02:03

Sounds good to me. I'm on my way.

0:02:030:02:06

# Whereabouts will I end up next?

0:02:150:02:18

# Let's put my Route Finder to the test

0:02:190:02:22

# It could be a beach, a village or a city, museum or a school

0:02:240:02:27

# A garden so pretty a church or station, a river or town

0:02:270:02:31

# I just can't wait till you show me around

0:02:310:02:33

# Tiddlers, I'm on my way

0:02:330:02:37

# So where am I today? #

0:02:370:02:42

It keeps on coming out? Dig a little bit more then.

0:02:460:02:50

-Make it go in. I think yours is ready, Beth.

-Yes.

0:02:500:02:53

Right, carefully. Plant it in.

0:02:530:02:55

Hey, hello there, Tiddlers.

0:02:570:02:58

ALL: Hello, Mr Bloom!

0:02:580:03:02

It's nice to see you today. It's nice to see you, Beth.

0:03:020:03:05

-Thanks for inviting me. Now, are these all your friends?

-Yes.

0:03:050:03:09

-Can you introduce me?

-That's Lewis, Callum, Luca and Amy.

0:03:090:03:16

-And what have we got here, Tiddlers?

-The Butterfly Bed.

-The Butterfly Bed?

0:03:160:03:22

-Is this where all the butterflies come? Is that right?

-Yes.

-I see.

0:03:220:03:26

'Hey, look, the Route Finder's showing us

0:03:260:03:29

'some butterflies in action.'

0:03:290:03:32

Do you know why butterflies are important in the garden?

0:03:320:03:35

-They come and get the pollen.

-That's right.

0:03:350:03:39

Butterflies and bees are really helpful for the garden cos

0:03:390:03:43

they help pollinate the plants

0:03:430:03:45

so we get all sorts of things growing in the gardens.

0:03:450:03:49

It also means we get yummy fruit on the trees.

0:03:490:03:52

-Have you got any fruit growing here?

-Over there.

0:03:520:03:55

Ooh, I think we should take a look. Come on.

0:03:550:03:58

Ah, we've got some cracking fruit here, haven't we?

0:04:030:04:07

-Luca, what fruit have we got growing here?

-Strawberries.

-Strawberries?

0:04:070:04:11

Ooh, they're not quite ripe yet but they'll be nice when they are.

0:04:110:04:15

-What else have you got?

-Blueberries.

-Oh, yeah.

0:04:150:04:19

They're green now but they'll be blue when they're ripe

0:04:190:04:22

so we have to be patient, you see, because fruit can take time to grow.

0:04:220:04:27

And I can see something else here that isn't a fruit.

0:04:280:04:31

-What have we got, Beth?

-Lettuce.

-Some lovely lettuce.

0:04:310:04:34

Now, it's a nice day today,

0:04:340:04:36

nice and warm, so what do you think the plants would like?

0:04:360:04:40

-Water.

-Go on then, pick up those watering cans

0:04:400:04:43

and give them a nice drink. There we go.

0:04:430:04:46

Hey, good job, Beth.

0:04:490:04:51

That's just what they needed.

0:04:530:04:55

Now have you got any other fruit growing here, Lewis?

0:04:550:04:58

-Yeah, apples over in the orchard.

-You've got an orchard?

0:04:580:05:01

Well, Lewis, lead on!

0:05:010:05:04

-Wow, so this is your orchard, Tiddlers?

-ALL: Yes.

0:05:110:05:15

-Now, how many apple trees have we got here?

-ALL: Ten.

-Ten?

0:05:150:05:19

Let's count them. Here we go.

0:05:190:05:21

One, two, three, four,

0:05:210:05:24

five, six, seven,

0:05:240:05:27

eight, nine, ten.

0:05:270:05:29

You were right!

0:05:300:05:32

-But those in the middle, they're not apple trees, are they?

-No.

0:05:320:05:36

-What are they?

-Pears.

0:05:360:05:38

So, you've got two pear trees and ten apple trees.

0:05:380:05:41

-How many trees in total?

-12.

-12!

0:05:410:05:45

Come on, let's take a closer look.

0:05:450:05:47

These apples are still very young, aren't they?

0:05:490:05:52

You know, they've still got a lot of growing to do.

0:05:520:05:55

I heard there's somewhere near where we can find out about apples

0:05:550:05:59

-and how they grow. Do you know where it is?

-Callendar House.

0:05:590:06:03

Hey, you lead on. Let's go.

0:06:030:06:06

I've come to explore the gardens at Callendar House

0:06:100:06:13

with Beth, Amy and Luca.

0:06:130:06:15

Wow, Tiddlers, this is a proper gem of a garden, isn't it?

0:06:180:06:22

Hey, those people,

0:06:280:06:30

they must have a great view of this garden from their windows.

0:06:300:06:34

-Hey, Beth, who's this?

-It's Mrs Miller.

0:06:370:06:41

-She tells us about the apple trees.

-It's nice to meet you, Mrs Miller.

0:06:410:06:45

Hello, Mr Bloom.

0:06:450:06:46

Now, you've got apple trees growing all over the place.

0:06:460:06:50

We have apple trees growing up a pole.

0:06:500:06:53

This one's a Galloway Pippin.

0:06:530:06:55

It'll grow to a lovely, big, juicy, tasty apple.

0:06:550:06:59

-You made the most of the space, didn't you?

-We did indeed.

0:06:590:07:02

We even have a tree that's growing against a wall

0:07:020:07:05

and, would you believe, we've got

0:07:050:07:07

one low down that we call a step-over.

0:07:070:07:10

Oh, yeah, Luca's taking a closer look.

0:07:100:07:14

So, Tiddlers, what do you think of these apples?

0:07:160:07:19

-Are they ready to pick?

-ALL: No.

-No, of course not.

0:07:190:07:22

-Isn't that right, Mrs Miller?

-That's right, Mr Bloom.

0:07:220:07:25

They're not ready to pick yet.

0:07:250:07:27

We've got two nice big ones and three little ones, so we're going

0:07:270:07:31

to take off the little apples to let the big apples grow more.

0:07:310:07:35

Hey, that sounds clever. Is there a special name for that?

0:07:350:07:39

-We call it thinning out the apples.

-Right, so what do you reckon?

0:07:390:07:42

-Shall we thin out the apples?

-BOTH: Yes.

-Yes, come on then.

0:07:420:07:46

-Hey, good work, Amy.

-Let's take off the little ones.

0:07:500:07:54

So, now you've taken these little apples,

0:07:540:07:56

-what's going to happen to the rest?

-They're going to start growing.

0:07:560:08:00

Yeah, they'll grow bigger and bigger and bigger.

0:08:000:08:04

-When they are ready, do you know how they're picked?

-No.

-No?

0:08:040:08:08

ROUTE FINDER SOUNDS

0:08:080:08:09

Ooh, ay-up! I think the Route Finder wants to show us.

0:08:090:08:13

There are lots of different types of apples.

0:08:140:08:16

Some are red, some are green and some are red AND green.

0:08:160:08:21

When apples are big and ripe, it's time for them to be picked.

0:08:210:08:26

They can be plucked by hand

0:08:260:08:28

or a machine can shake them loose.

0:08:280:08:31

Look, it's raining apples!

0:08:310:08:34

The juice from these apples is used to make drinks.

0:08:340:08:38

The hand-picked apples are then washed and packed,

0:08:380:08:41

ready for the shops.

0:08:410:08:43

Now, Tiddlers, I know something rather exciting about apples.

0:08:470:08:51

If you get an apple, you cut it in half across its middle,

0:08:510:08:54

-you get a...

-ALL: Star!

0:08:540:08:57

That's right. It's a star. We've got a star shape.

0:08:570:09:01

What do you think those are in the middle, the brown things?

0:09:010:09:05

-ALL: Seeds.

-They're seeds. They're also known as pips.

0:09:050:09:09

An apple pip was planted in this pot one year ago and, look,

0:09:090:09:12

an apple tree has started to grow.

0:09:120:09:14

A little tree like this is called a sapling.

0:09:140:09:17

-It's still got a lot of growing to do...

-ALL: Yes.

0:09:170:09:20

..before it turns into a big apple tree.

0:09:200:09:22

-Tiddlers, would you like to plant some pips?

-ALL: Yes!

0:09:220:09:26

Yeah, let's plant some apple pips. Hold out your hands like that.

0:09:260:09:30

That's it. Luca, I'll give you a pip there.

0:09:300:09:33

Amy, if you take the finger on your other hand, make a little

0:09:330:09:37

wiggly hole in your pot, that's it, and then pop the pip in there.

0:09:370:09:42

Then cover it over.

0:09:450:09:46

Oh, hello, Mrs Miller. What have we got here?

0:09:460:09:49

-We've got a little crab apple, Mr Bloom.

-Oh, an apple sapling.

0:09:490:09:53

-And how old is it?

-Three years old now.

-Three years old.

0:09:530:09:57

Oh, so this is a little Tiddler tree, isn't it?

0:09:570:10:00

Tiddlers, why don't you get this planted here

0:10:000:10:03

and then the visitors to the garden will be able to enjoy it

0:10:030:10:07

for years to come?

0:10:070:10:09

Go on, you get stuck in there.

0:10:090:10:11

Whilst you're doing that, I'm going to have a look at the kitchens

0:10:110:10:15

in Callendar House.

0:10:150:10:17

As well as the gardens,

0:10:260:10:27

in here we can see what a kitchen looked like almost 200 years ago.

0:10:270:10:32

-Oh, who's this?

-Oh, hello.

0:10:320:10:34

I'm the cook here at Callendar House and I have a pie ready for you

0:10:340:10:38

and the children.

0:10:380:10:40

Wow, look, a lovely pie!

0:10:400:10:42

I wonder, can you guess what's in this pie?

0:10:420:10:45

Have a look at the shape. Yeah.

0:10:450:10:48

It's an apple pie!

0:10:510:10:53

And this pie is cooled down and ready for you to take to the children.

0:10:530:10:58

-Wow, it's ready to eat! Thank you.

-Welcome.

0:10:580:11:01

Hey, well done, Tiddlers.

0:11:080:11:10

That sapling looks great and I think it's going to grow nice and strong,

0:11:100:11:14

just like all of you.

0:11:140:11:16

I hope you've washed your hands

0:11:160:11:18

because I have got a special treat for you. Look at this.

0:11:180:11:22

-Delicious apple pie.

-Wow! Doesn't that look good?

0:11:220:11:27

Because of you, Mrs Miller, and all of you, Tiddlers,

0:11:270:11:30

we've now seen what happens when you go from pip to pie.

0:11:300:11:35

Tuck in!

0:11:350:11:37

-Oh, that pie was the business, wasn't it?

-It was.

0:11:490:11:53

Well, thank you for inviting me here today, Beth.

0:11:530:11:56

I've had a cracking time but it's time I went so join me soon

0:11:560:11:59

-when I'll be...

-ALL: Here and there!

0:11:590:12:03

-Bye!

-Bye!

0:12:030:12:05

# Where is it you like to go?

0:12:060:12:09

# Call me up and let me know

0:12:090:12:11

# What is it you like to do?

0:12:110:12:13

# I'll pop along and do it too

0:12:130:12:15

# Cities, towns, the countryside

0:12:150:12:18

# I can travel far and wide

0:12:180:12:20

# I'm all abouts and everywhere

0:12:200:12:22

# I'm here and there. #

0:12:220:12:25
