Hello, welcome to the forum, hope you find some good information and friendly people here - we are all people who love to garden and talk about it, and enjoy sharing things with each other.
You are in a more difficult place to garden than some, but there are things you can grow that others can't - I believe that meconopsis do well in your part of the world, or is that more to the west? We are all 4 weeks behind this year because of the late spring, so I guess you are still in late spring? Do you still have tulips out? It was interesting a month or so back that things which rarely flower together were doing so as the early ones were late and catching up and the on time ones were coming through with them.
I have only just got to filling my hanging baskets which are usually done a month before this as it has been so cold and dark. We are haing a few good warm bright days too - long may it last.
Veggies are beginning to catch up a bit, but many are still a good way behind themselves - still, nature usually gets it right in the end, so hopefully will do so this year too.
