Do plants have a body clock?

Alex Webb tells us how plants have their own body clock, and how they don't like to be woken up too early in the morning.

I'm sure plants do sense seasonal change, it was only about three weeks ago and during some terrible weather, cold temperatures and harsh rain, and generally overcast most days, I had my first pollen sneeze in UK this year, then I mentioned to a friend I said ah the season is changing, we are in for some better weather, and low and behold it improved almost over night. Was this the plants and trees knowing change, or coincidence?
