Spring Bulbs for Schools

Eyton Primary School, Wrexham

Environmental science in your school yard

Professor Plant

Get out of the classroom! Join the 1000s of school scientists taking part in this exciting investigation. Adopt your own spring bulbs to help Professor Plant to find out how our changing seasons are affecting spring flowers.

Since October 2005, school scientists across Wales have been keeping weather records and noting when their flowers open, as part of this long-term study looking at the effects of temperature on spring bulbs.

We continue to work in partnership with the Edina Trust who are funding the pots and bulbs and extending the range of the project. This year we have 150 schools taking part! There are 72 from Wales, 21 from Scotland and 57 from England.
