Same here SGL, I did them early when I first moved here, keen, as new gardeners are, but then we had a frost in March/April time and those top exposed buds went black, had to prune again, I dont rush anything now.

Lucky you there Verdun, its going to be -1c just over the border tonight.
Definitely rats! You will need to get rid or you will be overrun, they breed quicker than you can blink.
It is a Primula, its not a bulb it will sprout leaves out of the top, looks like a Denticulata, did I send you one last year? Bury it in a bit more Victoria.
I always order from Parkers, only sale stuff, but you do need to nurture them. I pot them up and keep them in a cold greenhouse for planting out when they are showing signs of growing well. Definitely not yet.
Dont plant out before Mid April, or later if they are not growing well.
Thank you so much, that's lovely. X
Dove, dear, I know I havent answered your pm, I will, soon. I can do with all the hugs I can get in this impossible situation
Jennifer, as they are late, if it were me, I would cram then in a pot, double layered, as long as they dont actually touch each other they will look lovely.
I am still here, sometimes, I must answer my emails but thank you in the meantime for your good wishes. Sometimes I just dont feel like doing anything, really musnt get into a rut xx
