Me too. I'll go out in almost any temperature, (but over 10 for preference) but avoid rain especially as it makes the grass waterlogged. (We have, apparently had 115 cms of rain in Jan this year - the Jan average is 70cm....so it is WET!)
Another here . I wonder if I can justify a trip to Aldi to buy white crocuses ....?
I'm not really a fan of crocuses but they might look pretty in those bulb bowls I found myself buying on ebay ... ( should I mix with the muscari I snapped up at Morrisons ? Or just the crocus on their own ? )
Or will I have to bite the bullet and ,you know ,dohousework.
I have already started getting the garden ready for spring planting. Beds have been weeded and cleared of last years crocosmia, dead headed the hydrangea and started to cut back the roses. A couple of bonfires have been had to clear the leaves and prunings. In the greenhouse the sweet peas were planted before Christmas and are doing well. The geranium, Pelargonium and rose cuttings have survived and bern potted on. Next job is to wash down the greenhouse and clean the water butts. Then it will be time to look at early seeds and dahlia tubers. And if it ever stops raining then the grass will have its first cut of the year.
I have pruned some trees,bought some seeds and had a general tidy up. I miss gardening in winter too,but enjoy planning for the year ahead,and watching gardening shows. The end of March when the clocks go forwards is when I usually start up regularly though. There is nothing like the feeling of the first full day back out in the garden.
