It’s still only the end of March, yet spring has come so early the cherry blossom is already in flower. I’ve been down to Kew Gardens to check it out and it’s good news all round – plenty of trees in full flower and plenty still in bud with blossom still to come. It’s turning into a vintage year!
I visited the biggest concentration of cherry trees at Kew, situated behind the rose garden at the back of the palm house. There are swathes of white blossom on the Prunus Matsumae trees.
It’s so early the blossom and the daffodils are flowering together.
Many of the pink blossom trees close to the rose garden are still in bud or just beginning to bloom.
But further along the path towards King William’s temple you can find pink blossom in full flower, along with more Prunus Matsumae.
Kew Gardens is a great place to see cherry blossom as it has so many varieties – that’s what gives it the number one spot in my London Parks Cherry Blossom Top Five Guide.
