@jyotu It very much is ans where I live it rains most of the year on and off. Wales is wet. I'm just hoping that the rose buds I spotted dont get spoiled by it. I'm really looking forward to them opening
So far 8 spikes coming up in the flower bed an 2 in each of the 2 pots. Winter 2016 i thought i had lost it after contractors my landlord had in took the kitchen chimley down threw it down onto the soloman seal and dug up much of it leaving a hole they tryed to cover up with multi perpose compost i had. I was not happy and made sure my landlord and his mother inlaw knew it. But it has sevived with even more spikes coming up this spring than last spring.
