Bloom clock on Wikiversity

Organic_johnny(z6b SEPA)March 20, 2007

Hi all. I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in participating in a bloom clock, in the hopes of getting more phenological clues for when to look for pests and disease outbreaks. It's on Wikiversity (an offshoot of wikipedia), so it's fairly easy to use once you get the hang of it.

I'd also like to try making a bug and/or disease clock, but I'm not sure that would be as exciting as a flower clock :).

Here is a link that might be useful: Wikiversity Bloom Clock

It sounds very interesting. My only curiosity from a scientific point of view is this. Will the clock have a built in screening to sort out people who just bought flowers from the lawn and garden center that were artificially forced to bloom versus those that actually are blooming in their homes, offices, areas that have been planted for over a year? For example - in my front garden I have lilies that are now just a foot high and have no blooms yet yet the plants my dad brought home from the hardware store had blooms already on it. Just my two cents.
Have fun!
