The Tower moat, looking south, 29th March 2022. Showing a high-angle view of the newly installed Willow Nest sculpture by Spencer Jenkins. Part of the first stage of creating a natural landscape in the moat in preparation for Superbloom 2022. The woven willow nest structure is designed to be a viewing point.

Superbloom is a colourful, vibrant display of flowers filling the Tower Moat from June to September 2022 in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Designed to bring natural beauty to the urban space, Superbloom introduces and will establish a new biodiverse habitat for wildlife. The route takes visitors among the flower displays, including sculptural elements and a sound installation. 

Superbloom was designed by Historic Royal Palaces, working with Grant Associates - Landscape Architect, and University of Sheffield Professor of Planting Design, Nigel Dunnett.
