Hampshire has a milder climate than most of Britain because it is in the far south next to the sea which provides a softening effect and it is well protected from the Atlantic coast. We also have a higher than average annual temperature, an above average amount of sunshine and only average rainfall each year. It's county flower is the Dog Rose. The plant is high in antioxidants and because the fruit is high in vitamin C it was encouraged in the wild during the war so that people could make their own rose-hip syrup.
