Leaves: to remove or not remove?

Bulbs won't have any problem but if there are other smaller plants in there they may be swamped

Early Spring

Yes, it doesn't hold them back much does it. 

A very variable winter so far. Temperature up and down like a yo-yo. 13C now and predicted over night, dropping during tomorrow by 10 degrees, then up again the next day.

Good for breaking the dormancy of all my seeds, the warmth we had last year left a lot ungerminated

Good garden centre/nursery

A good GC for me would stock  a larger variety of plants than is usually seen. Too many have the same mass-produced, latest fashion plants at high prices.

Until this happens I'll stick with nurseries and plant fairs.

Go for some species as Berghill suggests Dove. You could get a new variety when they cross. Call it Dove and sell bulbs for £400 a piece on ebay.

It's spring here

Very warm and big changes since the NYD count. A few aconites and snowdrops, more hellebores. Some fairly tall narcissi but no heads turned down yet

Salvia is a genus Dove, officinalis, microphylla  etc are species,

'Madeline' will be a cultivar or hybrid of something, not one I know

Extra thorny roses

Surely there are longer, more impressive sounding words for thorns and prickles

They come from cool Northern Europe. In the Uk if we want to grow tropical plants we have a heated greenhouse or conservatory.

You may have to provide the opposite of this

They need sowing fresh so put them on when the pods open
