Worcestershire’s Vale & Spa – incorporating Broadway, Droitwich Spa, Evesham and Pershore – is an area of sheer diversity, not only in its surroundings, but also in what is on offer with accommodation, shopping, attractions and a plethora of festival and events – there is truly something for everyone.
Latest blossom update (w/c 16 April)
With the weather forecast to become a lot warmer in the coming days , this will encourage a lot more “white “ blossom to bloom….. damson, plum, cherry plum, pear, hawthorn and blackthorn . The orchards around The Valley at Evesham, The Squires and Chadbury located on the A46/A44 are likely to be the best view points this weekend.
Latest blossom update (w/c 3 April)
Due to much cooler and wetter weather in recent weeks, Vale Blossom is later this year. However if the milder and warmer weather emerges in the coming days, the blossom should catch up very quickly. We are starting to see the white blooms of cherry plum and blackthorn, these were originally planted as pollinators for the fruit orchards and can be seen in hedgerows and as bushes in older orchards.
Delightful shades of pink and white ornamental cherry and garden blossom including forsythia and flowering currant are also becoming evident throughout the Vale. Early magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) is also starting to show. There is some early plum showing but it is very sporadic at this time. The first plum blooms to look out will be czar and damson.
