    WW my sort of seed is fine to sow now. All those hardy plants need a chill to break the dormancy. I wonder if they'll get a good chill this year.

    I don't think what we've got now is that unusual. Warm, wet, westerly winds in winter. That's what we get

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • my garden is sodden, a lot of the plants are swimming and the spring bulbs rotted ,my wallflowers are blooming but that will leave march rather bare if it should stop raining .mild it might be and I don't like snow but you can have to much of a good thing and I wonder what damage this winter will do.? when you think what a good year last year was. The Bridgwater  flats are a wash and people are marooned and we cant walk our favourite places so roll on  spring, and let it all dry out(a bit).image

  • I agree floweringrose my poor plants don't look good at all. And yes please roll on the spring.

    Lucky enough for me my garden drains extremely well. The benefits of living on the side of a valley I guess.

    I am very sorry for those with flooded/water logged gardens

    We have stream at the side of our Garden , however , so far it had not flooded in living  memory , so fingers crossed . Great if we have a very dry spring/summer , I fill my watering can up from the stream

    Rose sorry to hear about state of things.

    I'm concerned that I bubble wrapped my pots and it's been so mild that plants are now thinking it's Spring, especially with warm feet!  Wonder how they will react if we do get a bitterly cold snap.
