Maybe -- just test it out before digging up the whole plant. I'm leaving mine for another week just to be sure they are worth the dig  :nowink:

My earlies have started flowering as well and I put them in about the same time.  Do the flowers mean its time to start digging them up then???????????????

Dig in and look under the ground --- all may become clear (or not, as the case might be  :unsure:)

Nothing is ever exactly as expected .........................

It is so exciting!  Mine have flowers too.  I thought we had to wait until the flowers die?  Or is this not the case?

My charlottes are also slightly further on than my white duke of york.  Charlotte flowers just opening, Duke of york still tight buds.  Both planted 12th March.
