    For gardeners it is indescribably exciting when the bumblebees get moving, the pollen starts flying and the blossom on the fruit trees starts bursting in springtime. In this episode of the Stopwatch Gardener podcast, I'm looking at the mystery daffodil that baffled me for years before being identified by the friendly Duncan at Croft 16, and I'm indulging in early fantasies about the roses to come, the first of which will appear in May.
