The lull before the bulb season, still and cold but quite a few things poking their noses out of the frozen soil here. I wish I had that many hoops Ian, and that my garden was that tidy!

I'm looking forward to this year and season. I enjoy the bulb log all year round, but most of all in our winter months when nothing grows here, and you have all kinds of plants coming up and flowering. Thank you!

I can assure you the garden is far from tidy even for me - I just need some favourable weather to get it ready before the growth gets too advanced.

Thank you for your continued support Leena one of the best things about the forum is that we can all enjoy multiple seasons as people in different climate zones share their plants with us sometimes flowering before and sometimes after they are flowering in our own gardens.

It's from Tasmania, Australia, Yann - one  of  Rod  Barwick's  narcissus.
Daffseek confirms that  it's  not  registered but  has  been around  since  before  2005 - https://daffseek.org/detail-page/?cultivar=Mondieu&auto=1

First  mentioned by  fermi in this  forum in 2007.

After seeing this I just checked my Trillium seedlings too - one pot with a couple of seedlings. Surprising how early they were, I wouldn't have expected them for another month or so. A couple of pots of Erythroniums also showing good germination.

It can be surprising how early some seeds will germinate if suitable conditions are there.

Feast your eyes on a host of golden daffodils - this week's Bulb Log is a gallery of Narcissus.

Your namesake crocus is very distinctive.  I hope it provides you with seeds.

Thanks Diane self pollination is never the best but is my only option neither is the weather the best for fertilisation so I live in hope rather than expectation.

One of the many good things about a rock garden is it looks good even when frozen - click the link for a cold Bulb Log.
