Apparently (weather for the midlands) its not going to be above 0c tomorrow and even colder on Tuesday -3 ! so if you have any plants/seedlings that need protecting (cover with fleece, better still take them inside if possible etc) today is the day to do it otherwise you may loose them.
Last weekend I took loads of stuff out of the greenhouse, not tender things, last year's lavender from seed, hardy (more or less) salvias etc. On Friday I put them all back in
Same here, i transported most of my plants into the conservatory from the greenhouse, still have a few in there which i'am going to cover with some plastic sheeting before tonight ..................... supposed to be -3 tonight /tomorrow ?
Just came back in from my greenhouse whereby i have covered over a couple of plants but as said most are in the conservatory which is 46 on the thermometer (just giving a slight bit of heat), outside feels like - 5 although it is not that cold ............ YET !? Brrrrrrrrrrrr
bitter cold here in durham. i,m starting things off at home in kitchen window
freezing and snowing here,so fed up,so much to do can't get on..tho also got 6x2ft trench dug in front for lead pipes to be replaced,half garden and half existing perennials...buried under huge pile of earth..hope some will survive,our 1st spring and summer here,so don't even realkly know what's there...
Snow falling, leaves of everything wind scorched through the night, the few daffs that had stated to open are flat on the ground, so will cut them and bring them in for my mum. Nowhere near ready for planting out yet, the winds here are always strong, last night even worse. Oh! the benefits of living in a high remote area? No neighbours for a mile and half though, so I suppose that's a benefit.
... bloody weather.
The Fens; about 2cm of snow on the ground, but it is still coming in from the North East horizontally and the sun is shining brightly, how weird is that? My little Apricot is having it's first spring in the greenhouse and is in bud; this is the time where it really must not get frost on it. Have a small Paraffin heater on and hope I don't have to put the large one on as Paraffin is about £8 for 4 litres these days.
Brumbull, Thank you
We seem to be getting away with the worst of the weather. Bitterly cold (just below freezing about an hour ago) but we do have blue sky and sunshine and a few grey/white clouds. Which is in contract to 5 miles up the coast where they have had a covering of snow overnight. Hope I have spoken too soon!
Bitterly cold wind here today, about 2 inches of snow overnight and very cold. Poor birds desperately looking for food again. Come on spring, hurry up, thought you were here last week. Last Monday I was out in the garden, no coat and happily pottering about in my garden.
Snowing here and a bitter east wind. Set to get to -3C tonight plus wind factor and colder as the week goes on. Very frustrating as I can hobble fairly well now and had my eye on pruningtheroses and teh rest of the clems. Maybe next week.
Eye watering out there. Think I'll start decorating the bedroom.
Not been done for nearly 20years Bunny. Must be time.
