The National Trust is urging people to use the longer, warmer days of spring and come together on social media to share their pictures as part of the charity’s first ever nationwide #BlossomWatch Day, Saturday April 24.

According to the National Trust, some of the best places to enjoy blossom locally include Hughenden, Cliveden, Stowe, Greys Court and Basildon Park.

As coronavirus rules are scaled back and loved ones can finally start to meet up outside, the conservation charity is urging people to use the easing of restrictions to share in one of nature’s most magnificent natural spectacles.

“This highlights the fleeting nature and beauty of blossom.

“However, fruit trees such as apple, pear and cherry will be blooming in late April and early May in the orchards at Hughenden and Cliveden, buzzing with insect life pollinating for fruits later in the year.”
