March 2010

Finally the daffs are coming...

Posted by Danielle Cowell on 26 March 2010
25/03/2010 - This daffodil has just started to open - it should open up fully tommorrow.
22/03/10 The daffodil bud has tilted - which means it is almost ready to flower.
daffodil buds - 15/03/10

This winter has been the coldest in 30 years - so our flowers have opened much later than usual.  Our first crocus was recorded in Murch Junior School on the 14th of February and our 1st daffodil also at Murch on the 17th of February. 

Since then many more have opened across the country. Study the maps and graphs to find out more.

Finally, this week the daffodils in my garden have produced their buds and hopefully should be ready to open soon! They seem a lot shorter than in previous years. We will study the records to see if this is a trend this year.

Many thanks

Professor Plant
