with Peter Seabrook from Springfields, Spalding
Twelve years ago, Springfields was a sugar-beet field of 30 acres. Today it is the mecca for 100,000 visitors during the spring season alone, who travel from far and wide to look at the tens of thousands of spring bulbs in flower.
The climax of Spalding's bulb season is the annual Flower Parade, to be held next Saturday.
This evening PETER SEABROOK looks at the preparations behind the magnificently decorated floral floats, and at the bulbs in flower in the garden.

Throughout the month of May BBC2 presents an international season devoted to the art of dance. Anthony Dowell of the ROYAL BALLET previews some of the people and performances.
The late Robert Vas's investigation into the Katyn Forest Massacre epitomises his concern for man's inhumanity to man.
In 1943 the Germans, then occupying the Smolensk region of the Soviet Union, unearthed a mass grave in which the bodies of more than 4,000 Polish army officers were found. They instigated an investigation: it blamed the Russians for the murder. Half a year later the Russians re-occupied the area, dug up the corpses and conducted their own investigation which put the blame on the Germans.
In 35 years the gruesome story of the Katyn Forest Massacre has become perhaps the most baffling unsolved crime of the last war. Files and men disappeared; a key witness was found hanged. There were no eye-witnesses to the executions; no survivors. No international tribunal ever sat.
Even today, Katyn is still an 'issue to be avoided', because of the far-reaching political and moral implications of the case.
In this film a self-appointed tribunal - in which the viewpoints of the nations involved in the case are represented by actors - conducts its own investigation.
What happened at Katyn? Who committed the crime? And why?

"Robert Vas's film was as compelling of its kind as is likely to emerge this year."
