Chance to take part in Saltram bulb planting
FLOWER lovers are being urged to visit Saltram today as part of a Heritage Open Day.
Staff and volunteers have been hard at work at the Plympton National Trust venue preparing for the influx of people for the big event which will see free entry to all visitors.
People can look around the house, meet with the volunteers who will be donning period finery to bring the house to life, and even try on some costumes before heading out to explore the multitude of pathways and hidden follies throughout the garden.
In return, visitors are being asked to help with a Big Bulb Plant which hopes to see 14,000 daffodil bulbs planted up to spell out 'Saltram' in 10 metre high letters on the grass bank below Saltram's amphitheatre.

The site sits high above the Plym Estuary along the popular river walk, and is visible from the busy Embankment Road across the river.
The garden team have arranged for turf to be cleared and from 10am to 4pm today they will need as many hands as possible to help plant the bulbs.
The planting operation has been aided by Winchester Growers, a daffodil bulbs supplier, who are based at Varfell Farm in Penzance.
The firm has subsidised the cost of the bulbs allowing organisers to bring their idea to fruition.
