It normally appears in the Spring so good for the early varieties of bumble bees. Not sure why vegman's ones are flowering now but reading the forum shows lots of things are a bit "confused" this year including some of my blueberries which started flowering a few weeks ago. The recent frost here has put a stop to that though and there are still lots of nice fat flowering buds ready for the "proper" flowering period next Spring.
I have a few lesser celendine in established borders which only need mulching and they're fine there. You do not want these in a veg plot or anywhere else that gets regularly cultivated though as that will cause them to spread uncontrollably.
