spring bulbs

is it just me living down here on the south coast of UK.....

but i have got crocus, tulip and daffodils and lilies and iris and freesia's all growing.....my tulips and daffs are at least 2 inches tall...

and the worst of it, is i know they will be killed in the next few weeks, as the weather has finally decided to take a turn for the cold....despite the fact ots still raining and grey.....have had some marvellous electrical storms just lately out to sea....and horrendous thunder and torrential rain...

still got trees with leaves on too!

and the weeds!!!!! don;t get me started on that one.

I know i am being a bit naughty as i do appreciate what the people further up the country are going through with the floods.

but our weather is total and utterly gone to pot, and the weather forecasters can;t predict the evening/monring ahead - more time is spent talking about weather we have HAD!!!

moan over...

and my sympathies to all those affected by our recent terrible weather - I know what its like to be flooded and the battle with insurance companies.

Weird weather Sam! the bulbs here on my east-coast garden are showing but not as much as yours in the south. I usually kick lots of falling leaves over them and hope it will protect them from frosts. It seems to work and saves my guilty concience from not clearing up the leaves too quickly.

Spring bulbs now?

I wonder what's happening with the bulbs now? The snow will insulate them from the worst frost but they won't grow in temps. of less than 6C. Perhaps they'll flower when they did in the old days!

I was in Cornwall last week and I saw a few daffodils in full bloom. I have January Gold and February Gold daffs here in Northamptonshire, but no sign of them yet this year.

My daffs are over 1" tall

But that could be because I've not planted them deep enough!!

Same here Sandra. When I said no sign of mine, I meant no sign of them flowering yet. Normally January and February Gold are early flowerers.

Angel, bulbs are often above the ground by now so yours will be fine. The snow will insulate them, so no probs.
