Caroline you won't gain anything sowing before March but they germinate quickly and grow fast.  March is only a few weeks away 

having said that I sow end of February ....indoors of course.

Hazel, it will be a reflection of how strong El Nino is this year.  It is affecting the weather GLOBALLY.  I well remember during my school days being told about EN.

el Nino has far more impact than our use of plastic bags, burning fossil fuels or cows emitting methane gas or anything we can do

no money in it for "experts" as there is in climate change.

buttercupdays, those word fixations applied to guy I helped...help still now and then. one word makes him shudder and inclined to run away.  He also went through a time when he didnt like me using his name too much so I stopped it for a while

I have limited knowledge  compared to many here but it's us "normal" folk who have to adjust.  I find being sincere without patronising or talking in a condescing way is essential.   and being truthful. indeed as we should be anyway 

help me find a plant with "Matilda" in it's name

Is it really needed this year?  I'm sure most of us have endless lists of plants in flower

we have all commented about daffs in flower.....we have fields of them. (I wonder if they will be picked or left this year.  A glut equals low profits )

Maureen could be or mice or similar.

yes, I would plant in pots and then plunge in the border when about to flower.

or plant with a wire mesh above them in the ground
