December Flowering Daffodil

2015-12-29 Flowering Daffodil (in December)It has been unseasonably warm this last two months, and our plants are confused. This daffodil from Dooneen is trying to get out before the snowdrops … only three months early! There have been reports from all over of plants flowering way out of season this December. Climate change perhaps, or a seasonal anomaly, who knows. What has been happening though is that ground temperatures have stayed up at 12 Celsius, which is a point where many plants start to grow at, and it might be an explanation of sorts. In the last few days, ground temperatures have fallen back to 7C, so that might put a stop to out of season flowers.
