The secret of getting spring flowers to flower outside before winter is officially over seems to me to garden in the city centre.  Here are Tulipa kaufmanniana "Love Song" in fill flower in my friend's garden just a few miles from me "out in the sticks".  That extra 1 degree makes such a difference.  Mine are showing red in my garden but only just.
