It snowed again image It were a couple of inch deep before I went to bed but snowed again through the night. A bit of damage to various plants, some plants flattened but starting to recover after snow/ice removed, I feared the worse for the crown imperials. It starting to melt now only to be replaced by more snow forecast image It the 1st of May on Sunday image

The brunnera jack frost goes well with the frost / snow image

 Crown imperials were fully arch over this morning, starting to stand up now image

    No snow but we had one of the sharpest frosts of the winter last night. Ice 1/4'' thick on the birdbath this am.

    "...slugs, considered by many gardeners as pests...."  Have you ever met any who don't?

    (...and why do they think that each sentence needs a separate paragraph?)

    No snow here but plenty of wind, rain and hailstone with the odd overnight frost thrown in. It was very windy last night so I went out this morning with some trepidation to check on my £10 coldframes from Wikinsons....

    Not budged an inch and no damage! A combination of their low height and a carefully selected spot seems to have worked.

    Success after years of having the larger 4 tier plastic greenhouse things blowing everywhere. And one memorable year a full size plastic greenhouse taking off and landing two doors downimage Never again!

    I had one of them plastic GH, forever blowing over even with bricks holding it down, eventually the wind shredded it. I keep think next doors trampoline going to make it over the fence one day.
