My cleome and cobea haven't done anything yet either, I seem to remember they took ages last year. Got lupins, dahlia, marigold, sunflower and opium poppy already growing form a Feb sowing. I let them germinate in the house then move them to an unheated greenhouse for the light and lower temps. I also like to start things inside so when the plants are big enough to go out they are less likely to get completely snaffled by slugs. Started some sweet peppers, courgette and kale yesterday. I won't make the mistake of planting veg plugs out too early this year though.
