The Hood said:Last Tuesday morning I heard the beginnings of this years first dawn chorus. The daffs have been flowering their socks off for weeks, and a large Daphne was smothered in opening buds. Such a contrast to the floods. I haven't heard any news for the last few days but wish all those affected the best of luck.
Andy831 said:Bloody **** it must be warm down there Hood, I have barely got snowdrops out here, daffs must be at least 3-4 weeks off
The Hood said:I already have parts of the garden blocked off as they are coming through, some are around three inches tall. One of the Isle of Scilly daffs in the back garden has already flowered but was flattened by the wind. My main collection came from R Scamp who I think is near Plymouth.
At the moment the drive is being replaced and I have fenced the daffs off to keep the builders away.
The Yeti is stranded in the garage for two weeks.
Andy831 said:I managed to bag a few of those Daffs, I missed the boat last year as they do not seem to be that plentiful in fact I had to buy them online as they were not available at any of the local nurseries.
It will be interesting to see when they flower compared to yours Mr Hood.
