Things to see and do

The handkerchief tree at Emmetts Garden, a National Trust property in Kent

Emmetts star of the month - the handkerchief tree

According to local legend the handkerchief or dove tree is said to be the most romantic tree in China, an association which dates back to the Han dynasty. It is named for the drooping white bracts that come out late spring which give the appearance of hanging handkerchiefs or the fluttering of dove wings. This rare tree is not to be missed this spring
