Findings so far...

Professor Plant

Since October 2005, school scientists across Wales have been keeping weather records and noting when their flowers open, as part of a long-term climate study looking at the effects of temperature on spring bulbs. Over the next 10-20 years (and hopefully more) we want school scientists to show how climate change is affecting flowering times in spring bulbs.

This year 6,326 pupils are taking part! By working in partnership with the Edina Trust we are able to extend the range of the investigation to England and Scotland!

Over the next 10-20 years (and hopefully more) we want school scientists to show how climate change is affecting flowering times in spring bulbs.

Each pupil will grow their own Crocus and Daffodil bulbs and monitor rainfall and temperatures from November until the end of March. Each pupil will be awarded with a Super Scientist Certificate.

All the bulbs and pots this year are kindly funded by the Edina Trust - www.edinatrust.org.uk.

Watch the results as they come in on our live maps and graphs...
