What is this all about

Azalia Arabesk.

Azalia Arabesk.

I was in the garden earlier and was just looking around when I noticed something coloured on my Azelia and getting closer to it I was amazed to see it in flower all underneath like as if it is protected but what now ? does mean it will now flower in May as I have just looked back at my Journal for the 4th of May and it is in full bloom .

It is gone quiet cold out now so hopefully the frost that I think is going to be here tonight will not kill it .

i am bloody freezing clara. plants are so confused, abit like ourselves. maybe cover it with some fleese in case, would be a pity to see it get damaged

Me also Kitty and I just went up to Woodies and looked out to the Garden center and all plants were put to bed and all had the fleece over them . not looking good for tonight . I have just been out in the dark doing the same , fingers crossed..

Hi Clara, the mild weather lately has encouraged some of the Rhodos/azaleas to open a few flowers but that should not effect it flowering as normal in May. Hardiness for your azalea should not be an issue unless its newly planted and hasn't been hardened off. Azalea Arabesk should come through winters last the last couple we have had, no problem.

Is there no end to this madness? But how nice to have flowers now!

Looks good, despite the mix up :-))

I'm not enjoying seeing the spring flowers now, I don't even want to be out in the garden.  Well except I was happy to see my wild garlic growing unseasonally early as I flavoured my lunch with it.

FRAN do you relalise for some reason today your comments have been duplicated on some of the journals?
