Following on from our visit from the Department of Agriculture's Aoife Munn, Rang a Cuig decided to do a spot of bulb planting. We researched the stages of bulb development and drew diagrams of their life cycle.
We also researched how best to plant the bulbs and what conditions best suit Tulips.We used lots of different types of Tulip bulbs as well as some Crocus and Hyacinth bulbs.
We plan to keep them in a cool, dark place for the winter period and are keen to see which flower blooms first in spring.
We plan to leave our 30+ pots in places all around the school to see what effect sunlight, temperature and water have on their growth.
Everyone in Rang a Cúig cannot wait to see the results come Springtime!
