Has anyone noticed theirs starting to flower again ??

I was surprised to see a bit of colour on mine and on investigation there are loads of buds waiting to blossom, not known this before in my garden

I love Azaleas, but not been able to grow where i currently am. and i know your south of the channel - but even still that is incredibly early.

it has been a totally weird year this year. normally my willow would be shed of all its leaves - but no - its growing new little clusters of new growth - i have still got runner beans growing - and the new ones (third set) are form runner beans that over podded from the first set and fell off the "vine" and have set and rooted - about 2 foot tall - i know they won;t amount to anything as the frost will get them - but you never know.??.

next doors holly tree is abundant in red berries already - which doesn;t bode well at all.

and usually our park is all out of conkers by now - but the conkers are still falling, and they are HUGE.

even my petunias that i thought had done there best, so cut them all back and the fuschias - also cut back have resprouted and are flowering.

its magical - mother nature at her best and weirdest, but at what cost over the winter?

ooh yummy, i would invest in some garden fleece - to wrap your azaleas in - in readiness for the looming frosts, to preserve your plant while in bud - it could be in harms way with new growth and buds and flowers on the horizon.

Mine are not in bud (yet) Yummy but they have definitely perked up. Mine are in pots and I've given them plenty of rain water from the butt which, apparently is good for them. I'll have another look to see if I can see any buds. The Perennials are stil looking colourful. Have been given quite a few packets of bulbs so that's a job to be done.

Now I bow to greater knowledge before I post this but....
I always get the odd bloom that suddenly decides it will not wait for Spring ! That said , here in the South with a wet Summer the buds are forming in profusion and will happily increase in size until hit by frost.
Seem to then just stop without any discernible damage - expecting a spectacular show next year.
