Martin asked how much cold Rhodophiala montana seedlings can take. 
Mature plants of this species overwinter under snow, where the 
temperature is probably quite moderate, and grow after snowmelt. I 
suggest keeping all Rhodophiala seedlings frost-free. I have them under 
lights in my garage, as Martin does, but if we have a severe cold period 
I will cover all the plants in there with a microfoam blanket.

David mentioned that there were daffodils flowering in England now. I 
haven't seen any actual "daffodils" here in Oregon, but Narcissus 
cantabricus and its hybrids are beginning to open.
