The crocuses in my garden have first flowered between 6 and 10 February every year since 2010. I think it is the very same two bulbs that flower first. Then a couple of dozen others follow suit.
This year’s first primrose on the same south-east facing bank as the crocuses. By 12 April 2012 there were 685 primrose flowers either fully or nearly open. On 9 April 2014 I counted 1254. I left them to seed naturally again last year.
Primrose is wildflower no.5 in my garden this year
