I suppose the other point about my conditions is that our soil is quite thin and dusty, so it dries out readily in summer, especially under grass and / or trees. I think that's probably a good thing for many summer dormant bulbs of a Mediterranean bent, so long as they don't need a real baking. Tulips seem to do well here for example, even though 1000ft up a Welsh hill with more than 1000mm of rainfall annually doesn't immediately sound like tulip country!

Anyone else finding that the very earliest flowering Narcissus (for me it was Narcissus romieuxii in January) are already showing yellowing leaves?

They do look at home in the grass, don't they?
