Kensington Palace is joining in the Platinum Jubilee celebrations with a colourful, vibrant display of flowers in palace gardens. Come and see new colours and patterns in the gardens, taking time to experience the nature that surrounds you. 

Creating a more intimate version of the Tower of London’s Superbloom, the display will be planted in spring by the gardens team using a specially designed seed mix designed by Nigel Dunnett, Professor of Planting Design, University of Sheffield. Planted, grown and maintained by Historic Royal Palaces’ garden teams, the flower display will see new wildlife visiting the gardens, with pollinators being attracted to the nectar rich flowers in the seed mix.

Mini Superblooms will also appear at Hampton Court Palace and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens during the summer as part of Historic Royal Palaces tribute to Her Majesty the Queen and to celebrate her 70-year reign, the longest of any British Monarch.
