19 November 2009,
Pupils from Oakfield Primary School asked: 'When will the bulbs sprout?'
Normally, I would say 'nothing much will happen until after Christmas', but some bulbs have already decided to pop up through the soil!
Pupils from Pentrepoeth Junior School reported: 'We were very surprised to find the shoots and we have now noticed a few more in our flowerbeds. I am attaching a photo for you to see.'
From studying the photograph, although I can't be 100% sure, they certainly look like daffodil shoots. Compare my photograph from last year - what do you think?
Please leave a comment if you see any early shoots or email any photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org
Many Thanks, Professor Plant
