1st Flower in England!
The first English Crocus recorded has popped up in Fulwood and Cadley School - on the 2nd of March.
Congratulations also to Ysgol Bodfari & Lakeside Primary who have reported daffodils and crocus flowers opening this morning.
I wonder when the flowers will open in Scotland? It's so exciting having schools in three countries taking part in the Spring bulb investigation this year! Many thanks to the Edina Trust - for making this possible!
Keep watching this map to see where the flowers open and please send any pictures you have to me and the local press.
All the data that is sent in is used to create an average flowering date for each school. Watch the crocus chart and daffodil chart to see the tables change as the data comes in. It is really important that each pupil sends in their record - so the web can calculate the average flowering date for your school.
