Historic Royal Palaces is celebrating HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with Superbloom at the Tower of London from May to September.
There will be 13,500 sqm of flowers and 20 million seeds planted in the moat, with up to two million flowers in bloom. There will also be other smaller Superbloom gardens showcased at Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace and Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.
Licensed product to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne on 6 February 1952 includes a new bespoke tea blend with Harney & Sons. This uses a traditional Earl Grey black fine tea, combined with bright bergamot silver tips and a dash of royal purple lavender.
In addition, a new jewellery collection will be launching with Clogau to reflect the colourful florals on display. The floral theme continues to inspire a Lily of Valley jewellery range including earrings, a ring, pendant and bangle. This is one of the Queen’s favourite flowers and featured in her wedding bouquet and will be on display in a Platinum Jubilee Tribute Garden.
