Peach blossom

Indoor peach blossoms flower early in the season, heralding the start of the year for the gardeners at Heligan. The flowers come out earlier than the majority of pollinating insects, so the gardeners lend a helping hand by using a rabbit's tail like a paint brush to delicately move the pollen from one flower to another.
