I have daffodils in flower. I have never had them this early before and would like to know if they are flowering in other parts of the country.



  • How lovely image  Whereabouts are you Betsy2 ? 

    We visited my mother in law in early November and she had a little multi-flowered narcissus blooming merrily in her sheltered west-facing front garden in south Lincs image

    We only have the very tips showing in our garden Betsy2. At the local market yesterday the flower stall was selling bunches which are the first I've seen. Wonder if they were grown in the uk.

    They look lovely Nut, why the worry?

    No Daffs here yet either (Essex) but have the greenery coming through.

    Hi Panda, good to 'see' you.image

    Those sternbergias need a summer baking they won't get thereimage

     but it probably doesn't matter too much. There are dozens out there and they rarely flower wherever they are.

    See you in the summer, I'm already thinking about next season's trips.

    No sign of anything daff like there. Although this year mine didn't seem to get a shift on until much later than everyone else's so I'm not expecting anything until May!

  • I've got a few little daff shoots here in Tyne and Wear, it's been fairly mild this past week so a few things have emerged.

    Everytime I put a trowel in the earth I find a sprouting bulb which is good to seeimage

  • Have 2 ready to flower in the Isle of Man, v strange as their 100 brothers and sisters in the garden are only just showing a growth!

    Daffs are poking through here in Suffolk, snowdrops too &  today I found the first Hellebore fully open.
