After A Chilly March, London Gets Some April Snow

LONDON (April 4, 2013)--Snow flurries swirled through the British capital Thursday, failing to stick, but giving residents the sense that winter temperatures would somehow never end.

Britain endured its coldest March in more 50 years and the trial is not over yet.

Richard Wilford, head of hardy plants at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is among the many who are wishing for warmth.

He said the consistency of the cold, given that London hasn't had a warm spell since Christmas, is worrisome.

Although some of the tougher plants are flowering now, many will just abort once they open, he said.
