I need to check on mine. I spotted flowerbuds the other day but I don't think they've reached the flowering stage yet. Mine seem to have a much better colour this year.

That’s good! I think leaving mine dry last summer probably didn’t do mine any favours. I dug them all out of their pots to dry whilst I was building the new alpine bulb beds) although most are at least still alive. Lost a few Iris bulblets so will have to look to replace the gaps made but will see what I can afford. Money is much tighter now I’m a gardener rather than working in finance 😆😆 @ublaszko (but I’m happier! That’s the important thing)

I agree. I used to work long hours before we moved to Newcastle. Now I'm working part-time with flexible hours and I'm much happier even though it's less money. Also, we've been able to afford a house with a garden up North. We used to live in a one bedroom flat in London and the only green space were the royal parks.
