It's too early to plant them out yet - I'd keep them in an unheated greenhouse for a couple of weeks yet at least if you have one. They can also stay indoors in your house.

North Yorks is grey and overcast, but dry so far. I'm pleased to report that much of yesterday's flooding has subsided, although the lawn is still a morass, so no gardening for a couple of days yet.

It should be fine to use this year.

You can actually buy "pot feet" at garden centres, which will raise the pot about an inch from the ground, which should help.

And a warm hello to you too, FloBear

I've lost count of how many ex-BBC folk have arrived here now - does anyone have an up to date number?

I think you could store them happily in slightly moist compost. Unlike tulips, daffodils don't really enjoy being dried off every year. Would it not be possible to leave them in tubs and put the tubs somewhere out of view for the rest of the year?

I've only just logged on today, and it's taken me ages to catch up!

Absolutely tipping it down in North Yorks today. Back roads are more like causeways, the river is about to break its banks and part of my front garden is under water.

This is one wet drought!

Lucky you - it's thrown it down all day here.

Mind you, we are officially in drought, so I shouldn't complain
