Flower headache for Royal Wedding

Encouraged by the early promise of summer, the spectacular tulips in the Queen Victoria Memorial Gardens have bloomed three weeks early, according to the Daily Mail.

The early appearance is a blow to Royal Parks staff who were hoping the beds would be at their colourful best on April 29.

Instead, an army of gardeners will be on stand-by, ready to chop the heads of any drooping tulips in the days before the wedding.

Spokesman Frances Therrien said: ‘The gardeners inspect the beds carefully every week. There won’t be any bedraggled, sorry-looking blooms on the wedding day. The wallflowers will be looking beautiful.’
