Superbloom - Tower of London

Monday 27th June 2022

Private Viewing by Livery Companies

As part of the Platinum Jubilee year for Her Majesty The Queen a ‘Superbloom’ of wildflowers has been created in the moats at The Tower of London. This has been spearheaded by Pollinating London Together (PLT) in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces (HRP). PLT is an initiative between the City of London liveries driven by The Worshipful Companies of Wax Chandlers and Gardeners.

The Mistress and I attended a private evening viewing, along with members and friends from some 40 other livery Companies, followed by a presentation from PLT and HRP. They shared their vision for a greener, more pollinator-friendly London at the New Armouries whilst we sipped on a refreshing Martin Miller’s Gin & tonic.

Over 20 million seeds have been sown in the moat which will continue to develop and morph over the course of the summer. Designed to attract pollinators, ‘Superbloom’ brings a wonderful natural beauty to this urban space and celebrates the value of nature for our wellbeing.

It’s open till mid-September and well worth a visit!
