Rain in the night which has cleared all the snow. At times windy but on the whole a pleasant day. It was nice to get out into the garden, first time in weeks.
Planted up some more garlic into modules, the lot planted in October hasn't even developed roots so thought I'd try again before the last frost, started this lot indoors and they've thick roots with shoots coming through.
Always been lucky with manure, no seeds in it. I've Lots of bulbs coming through, the labels have blown away though but me thinks crocus, dafs and tulips are coming up along with blue bells in front garden.
Belis, Sweet William and foxglove, planted out last year have all survived the snow. Really pleased with the foxgloves, unless something disastrous happens they should put on a good show later in the year, fingers crossed. Some stuff has died in the GH, there's cornflower and sweet pea doing well. For-get-me-nots not looking good though, bring on Spring.
