Exploding bull rushes

This spring Mrs Scullard found some bulrushes growing by a pond and brought them to school to see if they would grow by our pond.

We pulled them part and out came thousands of tiny seeds. Some we scattered and some we soaked and planted in pots.

Exploding bulrushes !!

Today we pulled apart some bulrushes to scatter the seeds around the pond area. We also soaked some seeds to plant in pots. Hopefully we will have some growing this time next year.

Bulrushes found on my holiday in Dorset.
Having fun exploding the seeds.
