Signs of Spring

We've had a full day without coats on today, and the weather forecast shows a good run without frost this week. I've started moving my seedlings out from the propagators on the window sills to the greenhouse, but i'll be keeping an eye on the forecasts. I've been pruning Forsythia today, which has just finished flowering . i've also seen the first Lily beatle of the season, - these lovely looking insects are dreadful munchers of all lilies and alstromerias. They are easy to spot and squash. if you find them, you also need to look for their grubs, which cunningly hide in globules of mud like substance on the lily stems, - wash this off to get rid of them.
