Living in the London micro-climate

Narcissi? In January? In my window box?

Seems like it...

Bloody hell. So far we only have a few crocus shoots showing!

Massive envy
At the moment it's -13, wind chill -23, and unlike the_gardener, I haven't even crocus shoots showing. cattitude saw this on my monitor and said "Let's move to London."

It's not just you. Admittedly, I'm in Dallas, Texas, USA, but we have cottonwood trees out off the front porch that are desperately trying to bloom, and the daffodils I planted in the garden are threatening to bloom as well.

I really should plant some daffs, they are quite my favorite plant. Of course, all sorts of things are blooming in California. :-) My roses have never stopped.

it's a nice sheltered corner - I put a lot of rich compost in and several plants composted down into the box last summer. the daffs came from ikea and after we'd had the pots on the kitchen table I let them die right back and dry right out before I replanted the bulbs into the window box. Good to see they acclimataised so well. It's shame I can't fix a window box to my bedroom window now (is it safe to fix a window box to a wall that's basically wood with tiles over it ie the upright of the mansard roof?)- perhaps I'll put a shelf on the inside and put pot plants there instead!

Nothing alive outside here, unless it's well bundled.
