I think i remember doing this in 2009 it was very mild barely cold enough to need a caot and everything started sprouting then in february we eneded up with snow and late frosts and half my garden was plundered I'm taking care this year to make sure all is protected and or partially covered.

I don't know about spring, but my roses are blooming and so are the sweet peas - how mad is that!!

The birds think it is Spring, but I am not taking any risks, February can be a very treacherous month, had quite a frost last night, nothing too serious though.

My Magnolia has a few flowers on it already and also one of my Pinks is in flower.

Very difficult for novice gardeners! With this weather and tiny buds on the chaenomeles japonica - ornamental quince, is it still possible to move it now? I know it flowers early but I have been waiting for the right moment. Has it been and gone?! Thanks. Would also like to move two hebes - but am more sure about these!

I have 14 roses blooming, pots full of Osteosernum in flower, Lavender still highly sented and flowering and a sweet Auricula in flower.  Love this mld weather, but the forecast is giving frost for the weekend, so I'll be out with my sheets of fleece and plastic cloches today!
