I generally add 2 weeks to any timings. At a 1000ft up in Lancashire, there is a noticeable difference in flowering time. My sedum spectacle fir example is only just starting to go pink.

I only use it now as a rough guide and live pretty much in the middle of the country, that's if you drew a line across the middle of the uk, so find it quite useful as a reminder.I'm in the Lune valley so could probably leave timings 3 weeks
