Re: new shoots already

Yes, all mine are the same RS.
Lots of things seem to be coming to life now.

Won't help them much if we get a lot of frost later though.

Re: new shoots already

RS I noticed the same thing the other day I fear this mild weather is confusing plants and they may pay for it later.

I have a plant in a pot that blooms in May/June with little blue flowers and was shocked to see it is covered in buds already. As least I can move it inside if we get heavy frosts.

Re: new shoots already

I was surprised to see some of the daffs in our borders already in full bloom. These are an early variety that normally bloom in early- to mid-February round here.
