Oh, I know so well how you are feeling, Andy. I am opening my garden for the first time to the Friends of Bristol University Bot, Garden on May13th this year and I have been going round my garden daring buds to swell or open too soon. Then I remember giving them a good talking to is giving them extra carbon dioxide and encouraging them to bloom so i shut up. I am sure all my wonderful tulips and even Narcissus poeticus will be over but I am trusting that other things will be early too ,although the sharp frost we had in Bristol last night may have scuppered that. It is never boring being a gardener.
