Every spring, daffodils and tulips, crocuses and hyacinths pop up out of the cold spring soil and reach towards the warmth of the spring sunshine. But how do these plants know when to begin growing? And how does that ugly brown bulb produce a flower? How do bulbs spread?
Children will have the opportunity to answer all of these questions and more as we take a scientific approach to bulb gardening. Students will get to dissect a bulb to see the plant parts that are still developing within. Then, students will design their own experiment to see how a bulb grows as well as what it actually needs to grow.
Yes, it is cold outside, and Spring still feels awfully far away, but Dundee Gardens is blooming with beauty…and excited over spring bulbs!
