SPRING BULBS PROJECT – Edina Trust

Science Investigation

Eco Council is delighted to be taking part in this years ‘Spring Bulb Planting’ investigation, along with hundreds of other schools across England, Scotland and Wales. We have planted daffodil bulbs in pots and in the ground and over the next few months we will be monitoring and measuring their growth. We will also be measuring rainfall and temperature each week and submitting the data to a central office to see how temperature, position and rainfall affects the growth of spring bulbs across the country. We chose a lovely sunny day to start the investigation.

A great job Eco Council!

We also planted the crocus bulbs donated to school by the Rotary Club. These are part of their End Polio Now campaign. We are looking forward to seeing them bloom in the spring.

That's 200 crocus bulbs planted!
