Your guess is as good as mine..! does it get affected by minus temps,and frosts,Angela? that would be a shame...

I hope they make it! We are hoping the snow passes us by, but easterly winds in winter are bad news here. We were in St Andrews yesterday and it was stunning. Winter has definitely gone now...the light and atmosphere have lifted. But that doesnt mean we won’t get a lot more cold wintry weather. Still.....spring is waiting in the wings for winters encores to end!

Sandra it's the icy cold winds that will cause the trouble!!
Karen 5 days of frost's and icy winds are bad news at this time of the year......

The forecasters keep moving the goal posts Sandra it now looks like next week for us from Wednesday onwards snow showers, at least if it snows it will go warmer.......OH been out and covered some of the more susceptible plants! all go!

Very wise. It could hit your tender plants hard.

The forecast looks bad for the South West later in the week. For us, I think tomorrow will be the worst. I'm not sure about the South Coast, East of Dorset......could get away lucky.
