    Thats  the pleasure of gardening Graham and not everyone can afford to just throw away and buy new every year. 

    No need to just hope they will be ok, they will be ok.

    In this area of Rochdale, the snow drops have not as yet flowered, they are now 14 days later than last year and previous years.

    not only are ,me late but also neighbours around the neighbourh have said the same, 

    i can only think this is due to the mild , damp conditions.

    any thoughts

    Mine here in Norfolk are going to be on time - they're usually out for my birthday next week image

    It's still quite early for full flowering but you should be able to see the white.

    Most of the gardens that open for snowdrops are open mid to late February and that's usually about right

    Just checked ours Paulb2 here in deepest south Lanarkshire. They are nowhere near ready,

    it's usually middle end Feb and this year looks no different, I wish they would come sooner as they fill me with hope for the springimage

    Perhaps I should have added the proviso "if we get some sunshine" - at the moment the buds are fat and white, but still pointing upwards.

    I have some flowering, some showing white and some peeping through.  They get a daily inspection (by torchlight on weekdaysimage) and they really lift my spirits.

    However, I agree that they are performing to their usual timetable (unlike the daffodils and irises which ate a couple of months early).  Someone said they actually need a bit of cold to get them going, so hopefully last week's freeze will have done the trickimage

    There are some fully out and have been for a day or two in our church yard here in N Warwickshire. I have one or two crocus and primroses out in my garden so it should not be long before spring now I hope.
