Spring Flower power!


Many of the gardens' camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias and daffodils, which usually blossom much later in the month, are already putting on a flower power show thanks to warmer temperatures and high rainfall over the past 9 months.

Head gardener Tom Clarke (pictured below) said: “It's proving to be a great, and early, spring at Exbury. The good news is our rare plant collections are covered in lots of buds as it was so damp last summer and autumn. And with the high rainfall continuing over the winter, along with the lack of really cold weather, we are in the midst of a fantastic flowering season."
