I am too full to think of food and my thoughts are wandering outdoors.  Has anyone got bulbs showing?  I can see tiny snowdrop tips and daffs and the leaves of crocus but is it too late to plant up the daffs and the tulips that i didn't get time and space for but are still in our garage?



  • I'd say still worth planting, get 'em in!

    Well if you don'timage- you may as well bin themimage

    They will still flower-just later-and with luck should flower again at the right time next year with a bit of feeding once finished-though tulips are aways a bit iffy for coming back againimage

    I can see tips of many bulbsimage

    Snowdrops are up . Russian snowflakes are up but can't remember what they are called - Pusc- something or other . Also Dutch Iris. The star of the show is my jasmine but it's a houseplant. It started flowering Christmas Day and the smell is just divine. image

    The yellow winter Jasmine makes a fab cut flower; bring it indoors - stick it in some water and all the buds open wonderfully over the next couple of days.

    Was pleased to see lots of signs of bulbs showing in various borders when nipped out to feed the birds today & even the start of new buds on the rose I transplanted in November. image J.

    Blue bells are starting to show in my front garden, it's some what sheltered though and they grow by a wallimage.

    In summer here in France plants and roses are nearly a month in advance but at this time of year there is nothing showing. Cyclamen well over, no sign of a bulb. They know that winter here can be very cold, but come March they will be growing like mad.
