Spring Bulb Investigation

4MD are taking part in a national investigation into the effects of warming Spring weather and temperatures on flowering bulbs in the UK. Tuesday 20th October was planting day; we spent the afternoon planting our Daffodil and Crocus bulbs. Over the next few months, two children each week will visit the bulbs to complete daily weather records. We will be using a thermometer to measure daily temperatures and a rain gauge to measure rainfall each day over the winter months. Children will also be able to note down any other important information such as a snowy or windy day.


We will keep you updated with our bulb's progress over the next few months.
