Am I being over-optimistic to be looking for my astrantias to be showing above-ground yet? I want to move some aquilegia Green Apples to that part of the border (if it ever stops raining enough to be able to....) but don't want to risk damaging the much-anticipated sign of them yet! Too early?

    I live in southern Scotland.
