2015 was another late year here but things happened so fast that it made us forget it was winter through April. We can EASILY switch into Spring/Summer temps but 2015 seemed pretty quick!


Check these out I had posted 3 yrs ago...


April 23rd VS May 11th. (2.5 wks apart)




May 4th vs May 17th (2 wks apart)

We are also expecting warm temps later this week...

Here in SW Florida, February was one of our warmest on record, then March was average to a little cooler. April here is beautiful; warm, sunny days and cool mornings and nights. Plus the snowbirds have left so the traffic eases up.

Some dirty snow in the cooler corners of the backyard


Also apricot tree has serious flower buds now and will probably bloom in a few days. Hope it doe snot snow or cool down anymore as that can kill the whole crop of apricots. I didn't even unwrap the fig tree yet; it is still below freezing at night. Also some crocuses are starting to bloom...

Gerbera daisies (bloomed almost all winter), buddleia, lavender, day lilies are just starting to come out. The knockout roses are out all over town, but mine just has buds.

Gerbera daisies all winter...how lucky you are! They are stunning plants/flowers. I usually only have a potted plant or two in summer...or a mixed pot with them and other trailing plants.

What are your averages so far? February was cold, March was 3rd cloudiest on record and very cold, which hasn't helped at all.

February temperatures: Meteociel - Climatologie mensuelle de London (UK)
March: Meteociel - Climatologie mensuelle de London (UK)

March 1 got the coldest temperature ever recorded in March. The high on the 2nd is the coldest March max temp on record. Before this year, March had never seen a subzero high.
Dec 5.9/-1.4C
Jan 5.2/-4.4C
Feb 10.1/.9C
Mar 8.7/.4C
April (so far) 11.9/2.6C

March -3.4F below avg, and April so far -5.5F below average. We are supposed to hit 80f this weekend and upper 70's. maybe all of of sudden the trees will pop. We shall see. Worst March and April in a long time.

C'mon your winters have far more than that blooming in winter. I was there in Jan 2016 and 2017. Camellias all over and all kinds of cold hardy flowers even after 20'sF temps I've seen all kinds of flowers in Beaufort and Savannah. I have pics.

Look at this for Savannah in January lol. Looks like summer almost to me.

I don't know where you are in NJ, but 15 day models for my area show no temps below 39F.
