Crocuses, not the autumn flowering ones, up an inch already in my alpine troughs.

I have just found 3 daffs in a long established patch in full flower, onthe other hand those in my woodland garden which usually flower first aren't even showing leaves

earlier this year i decided to try ladybird larvae in my garden in order to keep bugs at bay-well they did a great job-but there are still hundreds of them all over my bean stalks (which are incidentally still covered in beans)! Never thought they would both still be around at this time of year!And all my bulbs are up-some around 4 inches high!

I tidied up in my spinney today and found the biggest, sweetest blackberries of the year. They will be frozen with Brambleys for puddings next April.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has bulbs popping up - and my yukka in the front garden has the most spectacular 4 foot flower spike on it. Sometimes things just seem a bit topsy turvy don't they?

I have some flourishing plants in my borders. They are clearly a type of chrysanthemum (purplish button flowers)which I bought in a supermarket. I am wondering if they will survive left, or should I dig them up & plant them in the greenhouse? I now have similar yellow button chrysanths in pots. Can anyone help before the frosts arrive?

I like the seasons too It brings more birds to the garden. Mine is waiting with expensive high energy food and the garden is empty of wildlife!

Hi Kate,

I have blue bell bulbs that have started to show about 2 inches above the soil - which seems very early to me - when should you start to see bluebell bulbs sprouting?
