OVERLOOKING the boot-iful Herefordshire countryside last week, this three-metre high wellington boot dwarfed most April Fools pranks this week.

Set up on the Malvern Hills on April 1 to promote the RHS Malvern Spring Festival, the stunt caused a number of Herefordians to do a double-take.

The boot will hope to give the show’s popularity some welly – and gardening enthusiasts will be able check out the festival themselves next month.

Running from May 8-11, the Spring Festival will feature show gardens, celebrity talks and cooking demos.
