Spring Bulbs

by Daniel Pepper, Ms O’Connor’s 4th Class

This week our class planted spring bulbs. We planted hyancinths, crocuses, tulips and allium.

Spring bulbs need to be planted in autumn because they need several weeks of cold temperatures to break dormancy and flower in spring.

We dug holes of 10 – 15cm deep and placed the bulbs in the holes, pointed and facing up. Then we covered the bulbs with earth and watered with the hose.

Our bulbs are perennials. That means they will bloom every year.

Next week we are hoping to add snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells to our spring garden.

We hope you enjoy looking at our photos. Please check back in spring to see our beautiful colourful flowers!
