That sounds good. I have some outside in pots, (nottingham outskirts) and they are showing through.  They were planted last year or year before. I top dress with well rotted farm yard manure as they like being fed. If the compost is too wet, raise the pot off the floor on bricks to let it drain better.

Its not been my mums or mine either. Mums tomatoes are ready to go at least two weeks earlier than usual, with the date of sowing the same.

My seedlings in the greenhouse are romping away. February sown sweet peas are catching up with October sown.

My electric fan heater bill will be way down on last year.

Do you know what variety they are. ?

They look like tete a tete. Small bulbs will produce one flower. Larger bulbs tend to produce two or even three off of one stalk.

Do you have a warm place you can put them? If so, I would pot them up into largish pots of a good  compost with a little added extra fertiliser. Then water and keep in a warm frost free place. If you do not have a frost free place, Wait a bit before planting out.

trying to identify this shrub, have tried with two pictures, hope it helps
