Super Scientists! The Edina Trust would like to thank everyone that worked so hard planting their bulbs, observing and sending in their records. We couldn’t have carried out an experiment like this without your help!
Which region had the most/least rain? England had more rain than Scotland. Can you estimate how much more? During the Bulb Project there was approximately 2mm more rain in England than Scotland
Which region was the warmest/coldest? England was also the warmest. Why do you think that is?
Flowers will open earliest in areas where it is both warm and sunny, especially during the month of February. As you can see, during February it was slightly warmer in Scotland than it was in England. But by March, it was a lot colder in Scotland. Brrrr!
But the flowers opened earlier in England when planted in the ground - and even earlier in Scotland when planted in pots How many days later did their bulbs in the ground flower to those in pots? 12 DAYS 2 DAYS
Why do you think the daffodils in pots flowered at different times to the daffodils planted in the ground? We think that it might be because the bulbs in pots are more vulnerable to changes in the weather – it takes a longer time for the bulbs in the ground to get warm. So, where the temperatures were higher in February, the daffodils in pots flowered earlier – like in Scotland.
What do you think? Our reason might be right, but we would need to test it to make sure – that’s what science is all about!
Which region had the tallest/shortest daffodils? Using the bar chart can you estimate how tall the daffodils are? A good estimate is any value between 191mm and 197mm A good estimate is any value between 182mm and 188mm
This could be because: England had more rainfall so the daffodils had more water to grow, or England was the warmest region overall, and daffodils need sunlight to grow. To be sure why we would need to do more experiments. Can you think of any other reasons why daffodils may have grown taller in England?
Finding a trend is quite difficult but some things are clear… The bulbs rely on both sunshine and warmth in order to flower. Our seasons are becoming more unpredictable as our world is getting warmer.
