My Golden Jubilee Year in my garden is going to be memorable at least for the stormy weather. Once more it is raining and the winds are fierce so I have to stay indoors, but that means I spend more time in the conservatory where my newly sown peppers are up and my antirrhinums and second winter sowing of basil, the first having got damping off disease. Some of my primulas and auriculas have their first flowers. The large flowered auriculas are lovely and the primula called "Firecracker". More daffs have opened their buds and my cymbidium orchids look promising. They usually flower end of February which is when the weather forecasters think we may have some calmer weather.
