As global temperatures rise it is probable that fruit trees and other plants will blossom earlier than previously. A research project is underway to collect date and plot exactly what is happening. Members of the public – citizen scientists! – are invited to contribute by recording when they see different fruit trees blossom in the local area. Results can be logged in at
