Spring tidy up

Options
The sun is shining, forecast for warmer weather. Had a look round the garden and would love to tidy up by pruning hydrangeas, clematis, roses etc but feel it is far too soon, especially as in South East Scotland. What do others think?

    I didn't think it ever got warm in Scotland :eek:.

    I have got a feeling that your perception of warm is my idea of freezing :D.

    It does, honest! We are lucky where we are in the South East in that it can be milder than other areas. Being near the sea we don't get so much frost. Usually the flowering plants in my garden are a few weeks ahead of my sister's in Dundee. Double figure temperatures forecast for this week coming! Positively t-shirt weather.

    Do you call February Spring? Hydrangea would usually be pruned in Spring, otherwise it's a bit too early for me even in SE England. We can still get snow in Feb.
    But I agree it has been a lovely Spring-like day!

    I live in Cumbria and I don't prune my hydraengas until the start of March, before then and I think they are susceptible to frosts.
