National Trust prepares for early blooming spring colour
WESTERHAM'S warm winter could encourage bumper blooms at National Trust properties this spring.
Emmetts Garden, renowned for its spring colour, should have about 19 per cent more flowering plants and bulbs springing up due to the long unseasonably warm weather, an NT spokesman said.
The property's head gardener Simon Walker said: "The unusually mild winter got our bulbs off to a great start.
"The recent cold weather has brought things back into alignment, and we're now expecting terrific and extended bulb displays in March, in time for Mothering Sunday.
