Early flower spikes

Recommended Posts

It comes as no surprise with the mild winter we have had in south east England. But I already have spikes pushing up! Is anyone else's season starting already?

Loads have popped up here in the last 10 days, even though it's been constantly raining and dull.

Excellent. Even up there in Lancashire. Hopefully it means that we we have a nice long season. 

Coincententally I think I have just bought a S. Leucophylla from you, from a well known auction site. Just missed out on the alata (ignore if it is not you :biggrin:)

I have a few flower stalks forming.

Just watched the weather, they're saying freezing temperatures tomorrow,but at least the sun will be making a welcome change from what we've been getting. 

Spring feels close.

Yes, the L43! It's a nice one :-)

I love looking the new life across the garden at this time of year. About a quarter of my Sarracenia have small buds, a lot of Drosera are breaking dormancy and a couple of hardy Pings have appeared at the surface of the compost.

plants started waking up 2 weeks ago but they are not pushing the stalks or leaves at high speeds, it's more like slow growth until march, then the growth is really fast.
