If you have planted them in the grass they are very hard to see as the new green is much like blades of grass, I didnt think mine were up a few days ago but today a few flowers have appeared. I am sure they will come unless voles or mice have taken them,  I have holes everywhere in the garden and the tubs.

It's my birthday

You are right Lizzie, rotivator not really a good idea, same if you have ground elder. Try to dig them out if you can. 

Spring bulbs -too late ?

The advantage of planting in pots is that you dont have the dreaded green leaves going soggy in the garden when you want to plant other stuff in there.

 Hello O of 7, welcome to the site, I would absolutely agree about buying the begonias in plug form,  I have grown them from seed but hardly had enough for any use. Buy the plugs in March, pot them up then pot on again before planting out afer all frosts have gone. 

When they have finished flowering, you can save the corms for next year. Well worth the extra money to do it that way.

I found the only way was to keep cutting them back and digging them out, now I can catch them when they are small. Glyphosate didnt touch them, just killed the leaves then they shot out again with a vengeance, so after several sprays, not doing any good,  I just dig.
