Average temperature for this time of year are around 5-7 C-so unless Tim you are experiencing a heatwave your 8-10 C above that is way out
Long range weather forecasts-are not to be taken seriously-I was told on this forum not long ago that we were in the the coldest winter for 100 years-remember that
Everything evens out in the end-drought anyone ??-we are bound to get another winter blast soon-but who knows when-then any advanced growth will soon come to a halt.
I have primulas in flower, too, and plenty of bulbs showing. But at the local hospital today, I spotted a cherry blossom in full, glorious, bloom...
I found 2 aconites out today.
It's been quite mild recently in Dordogne too, but we had some severe frosts in autumn so nothing that flowered earlier is still in flower. Sounds milder in England. Bulbs just starting to show here and one Christmas rose is out.
I think Tim meant to put a comma after his 8C-10C.
You are probably right
I have got all spring bulbs appearing, narcissus, snowdrops and even bluebells are coming up? Does anyone think this is normal? My thought is that they are coming up a bit early?
It's early but when we get a cold spell it will all slow down.
I have been gardening for 40+ years-and without fail there will be reports of something flowering early and asking if it is unusual
And without fail, a cold snap hits and it all comes to a stop
