Involving Community Groups in Creating their own floral display to celebrate the superbloom at the tower of london
Historic Royal Palaces partnered with local community groups across London in 2022 in an exciting creative gardening and wellbeing project.
In June 2022, the Tower of London celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by transforming the Tower moat into a vibrant, joyful field of flowers. The flower display erupted into new colours and patterns creating a spectacular and dramatic experience throughout the summer months of 2022.
'Superbloom' has brought natural beauty to the heart of the city, giving people time to slow down, reflect and bask in the simple joy of flowers in bloom.
Community groups local to the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Palace were invited to help us spread this joy across London in this once in a lifetime experience.
Accessible gardening for everyone
Community groups had the opportunity to create their own mini-superbloom displays in community spaces for everyone to enjoy.
The project was flexible and enabled groups to shape it around their particular needs and interests, as well as their available space and capacity for creating their displays.
No space was too big, or too small- from gardens to window boxes and planters, everyone was invited to get growing.
