How one of Queen Elizabeth II’s passions will play a major role in the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Next year, QUEEN ELIZABETH II will complete an unprecedented seven-decade reign as the monarch of the United Kingdom.
In honor of the occasion, a well-known London landmark will be transformed into something that reflects one of the Queen’s passions.
Next year, the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations will include a visit to the capital’s historic Tower of London.
More than 20 million seeds will be sown in the Tower moat in Spring next year as part of the Tower’s ‘Superbloom’ event, resulting in a stunning flower display in the warmer months.
The Superbloom event promises a “spectacular, colorful, vibrant field of flowers” that the general public will be able to explore.
The abundance of flowers is intended to attract pollinators to the heart of London, acting as a “new biodiverse habitat for wildlife,” according to the plan.
The display’s winding paths will allow visitors to immerse themselves among the flora, bees, and butterflies.
The event will also include a “specially commissioned sound installation” as well as “sculptural elements,” with the goal of making it a relaxing and enjoyable experience for everyone who attends.
Historic Royal Palaces, landscape architects Grant Associates, and Nigel Dunnett, University of Sheffield Professor of Planting Design, are working on the attraction.
The floral display will be a welcome change of pace for the moat, which was built to protect the Tower in the 13th century.
Historic Royal Palaces claims that the moat has been used for a variety of purposes over the years.
In medieval times, the moat was used as an orchard, and during World War II, it was used as a location for allotments.
The Queen’s Green Canopy tree-planting campaign will be joined by many other gardening-related initiatives during the Queen’s Jubilee year.
According to the Telegraph, the Queen has been said to enjoy gardening in her later years.
So it’s only fitting that a gardening celebration be included in her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Since her coronation in 1952, the Queen has been a regular visitor to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, one of the UK’s most prestigious gardening events.
The Queen’s love of gardening and the outdoors appears to have been passed down to other members of the Royal Family as well.
Prince Charles, the Queen’s eldest son, is a known gardener, as is his daughter-in-law Kate, Duchess of.
