Spring Squill, a speciality of  coasts  in the South West, is out now in South Pembrokeshire. Related to the garden bulb, Scilla, this lovely blue flower grows in short, free  draining turf, and will be a bonus for bees if you grow the garden variety. We have been seeing carpets of it on the limestone cliffs.   Conditions: cool and cloudy.  Temperature: Max 10, min 7 c.
