287 different plants in bloom on New Years Day!

On New Year’s Day we counted how many plants are in bloom at VBG and came to a record number of 287! This is a duty we carry out on an annual basis for fun, though recently we have seen trends linked to climate change. This December has been extraordinarily mild, the lowest mean temperatures have been higher than the highest means for most Decembers. New Years Day 2015 saw well over 100 different plants in bloom at VBG. This year there have been many surprises as autumn and early spring flowers have collided in December and into January.
