I can't find David K's sweetpea thread, can someone dig it up for Wills?

Mine aren't 

My guess is that all the shrubs and perennials that are flowering now, out of time, will flower again at the right time but the bulbs won't.

This is based on a scientific idea with its roots in sauvignon blanc

I'd have them out on germination before they get all soft and leggy

The catkins are the male flowers which fertilise the female flowers. The female flowers appear at the same time as the catkins open up in spring.  The females are little tufty red things. You've got 4 so you'll be OK for cross pollination. 

Garlic rust and tulips?

Diseases are generally specific to a plant or close relative. I doubt if your tulips would be susceptible to garlic rust.I've never seen rust in tulips but I don't grow many.

Kayjay, that's normal. 

There are buds on all the trees, have a look around at others.
