Roses in bloom since 18th April!

Denbighshire, United Kingdom Gb

My rose bushes 'Old blush china' have been out in bloom since 18th April 2011.
They usually come out around 1st May and last until December/January.
Is an April flowering the earliest natural (unforced) flowering of a rose in Britain, or is everyone experiencing a similar phenomena?

On plant Rosa



Most plants and shrubs are flowering early due to the unseasonably warm/hot weather. I doubt if there is any record of the first flowering of a particular rose but you could check with the rose society.

How do I say thanks?
