Finally the woodland snowdrops are starting to appear – late this year, after quite a lot of snowfall these past few weeks. This might be one of those years where we get daffodils and snowdrops flowering at the same time as some of the daffs are well through.
The polyanthus too are starting to appear – a cheery show of yellow, blue and dark red.
We’ve started to water the over-wintering seedlings in the greenhouse again as on sunny days, quite high temperatures are achieved. The baby Hostas and Rudbeckias are starting to come through. As they will be too little to put out in the borders this year, we’ll pot them on from their modules to 3 inch pots which should get them to a nice size for planting out in the autumn.
Next week, back to the borders for some early-season weeding and pruning!
