January Bloom Times
Below is a list of plants that began to bloom in my garden in Seattle in January 2011. I recorded the date when the 1st flower opened, not when they were in bud. Not very many plants bloomed in my garden in January.  If you have others, please let me know.  Nurseries in Seattle usually sell plants when they are in bloom. I have included dates from previous years. Weather conditions probably account for most of the difference in bloom times.

You have a lot going on in your garden. It was nice to see cyclamen, I love them too. I am surprised you have irises blooming already, it is too early for them here. Your hellebores are beautiful.
