What flowers in February?

How about February Gold daffodils?  

Sounds like a lovely idea.  I have a little oak tree grown from an acorn to remember my Mum - OH even bought it a special pot for me as a Christmas present.

Morning  Freezy cold here again - but no more snow.  Hoping for a quiet journey in.  I think my wildflowerseeds are properly stratifed now, so could someone turn the heat back on please

Good luck with that letter Fidget - there are lots of things need saying in there.

Dusting of snow this morning turned into a blizzard on the way to work.  Cars ground to a standstill ....eventually got to my desk at 10.15.  All gone now though - wonder what adventures tomorrow will bring.

Morning Wintersong, morning Yvie.  Feel like I am the tardy one here this morning.

light dusting of snow outside - hopefully will be ok to drive in

Hope the beaujolais is a good'un Verd.  I have ordered seeds to try and give it a go myself .....think it could be slightly longer before I get to see any flowers.  Looking forward to your photos to spur me on

Got an early start tomorrow, so will say Good Morning Forkers now instead

Window ledge style heated propagator - any good?

Woody - i do west facing for germination and north facing (but turned every couple of days to stop them leaning too much to the light) for growing on a bit.

Lesley  - look forward to comparing notes on production lines .  I will be sowing my first batch in mid Feb
