After the coldest night in 26 years with temperature down to -20.2 was it great to get into in the greenhouse today where the temperature is +5 degrees :) There were a few new Hepatica in bloom. Hepatica nobilis v. japonica 'Genrei' is a wild collection from Mt. Yahiko.

Peppa, I have good experience with pricking out early in small pots.

Michael I think that the nibbles look like the kind of "grazing" we can get here from the Sparrows. ???

Just naughty chompng to see if they're tasty, y'know.

The blues are so good.... but the stronger pinks, almost reds... well ..... 8) 8)

If it is Sparrows, forget the destroy!   :o  I'm glad our Sparrows aren't voracious like that (knock on wood).  :D

Lovely range of colour there Michael, you must enjoy a warmer climate there than I have (one bud currently showing some colour).

I get similar damage to flowers occasionally, the culprit always seems to be very small slugs grazing on the buds. They're even active under currrent conditions when our night-time low is down to -3 to -5C, and the greeenhouse is kept barely frost free. They must move about during the day when the air temperature warms up. I've found I get less damage isince I began to remove last years leaves around the turn of the year, as you can see the little slugs more easily and pick them off.

Very stunning deep colors Tetsuo.  All are beautiful but that electric blue is just wow!  How wonderful to be able to enjoy them early.
