Superbloom Schools

Be part of a blooming marvellous UK-wide spectacular!

Get ready to dig, sow and grow with us as we transform the Tower of London’s iconic moat into a spectacular field of flowers in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee.

Get digging and spread joy to your school community by creating your own flower display

In Spring 2022 we’ll sow over 20 million seeds in the Tower moat, filling it with flowers throughout the spring and summer, creating a spectacular 'Superbloom'.

Using our specially created seed mix, your school can design its own display in harmony with the Tower, creating a new biodiverse habitat to attract wildlife and a space to celebrate the value of nature for our wellbeing. It's a great way to get outdoors and work together to create something special for your communities to enjoy.

Share the moment with schools nationwide

Give your blooms lots of love and green-fingered attention and then watch your flowers grow alongside the Tower and other schools across the country in a shared moment of joy and celebration.

Let's grow!

Get digging and designing and join in the celebrations by following these simple steps.
