Oh, I know so well how you are feeling, Andy. I am opening my garden for the first time to the Friends of Bristol University Bot, Garden on May13th this year and I have been going round my garden daring buds to swell or open too soon. Then I remember giving them a good talking to is giving them extra carbon dioxide and encouraging them to bloom so i shut up. I am sure all my wonderful tulips and even Narcissus poeticus will be over but I am trusting that other things will be early too ,although the sharp frost we had in Bristol last night may have scuppered that. It is never boring being a gardener.

I can't wait to see this. It's fast approaching and I'm looking forward to the highlight of the gardening year that is the Chelsea Flower Show. If you'd like us to promote any aspect of the garden on our site (http://blog.theenduringgardener.com/category/garden-shows-and-events/chelsea-flower-show-2012/)- let us know. Best of luck.
