I've got them coming up as well, only the dwarf types but they seem to appear from early December so are probably an early blooming type........................didn't see them last year though, wonder why icon_scratch ..............oh yeah, buried under a foot of snow :roll:

Some varieties come up now they are fine during cold weather.
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

Not unusual. Some years the Crocuses are starting to show before Christmas. Not seen any this year yet.
Best regards
