- what herb/vegetable come up first for you?
Every gardener needs signs of spring and alongside the crocus and early daffodils I always look for the lemon balm to emerge. Lemon balm emerges from dormancy with bright green leaves indicating that winter is finally ending. My rhubarb is also emerging - for the second time! The first attempt was early January after a very mild start to winter. Those shoots were killed when winter arrived but now some new shoots are tentatively emerging again.
So what is the first sign of spring in your garden??
