Olympic Flower Rings – Seen from the Skies

To mark the grand 100 day count down to the Olympics, to be held in London later this year, a giant  floral arrangement of the world recognised Olympic Rings was placed at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. Amazingly, it took over 20,000 flowers to make this arrangement, quite impressive! So large that it will be visable as our guests arrive from the skies. The idea behind this was so that it will be seen on the flight path on one of the busiest airports in the world.

People flying in from Heathrow airport will see the Olympic rings comprising of Pansy’s to make up the light blue ring, the yellow is made up from violas and for the black too and Mentha suaveolens for the green and finally violas again for the red. Even the compost and soil around these flowers has been safely dyed in the colour to make it solid. It only gets better!
