    so far, only some roses that had to be pruned. They have come up nicely though (no pics, sorry).
    Gladioli, dahlia, begonia and some other bulbs to go in. Stock, echinacea and Delphiniums in the greenhouse growing from seed

    8' tall!

    No, they are about 1" tall with their first proper leaves on.

    I have no idea how big they should be, I am no flower expert. They've taken two-ish months to get that big
