Waddesdon Manor Floral Display
Waddesdon Manor has designed a floral display in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. Waddesdon Manor which is situated in Buckinghamshire near the town of Aylesbury was designed in the style of a french renaissance chateau and was built in the 19th century.
The flower display at the Manor is a 15 metre by 5 metre spectacle and will contain up to 50,000 flowers of all species and colours. The bed of flowers will be situated to the south of the house. There will be a special message among the flower display for the Queen’s diamond jubilee. The flower display first came in prominence when the famous BBC show Blue Peter ask viewers to send in ideas of a jubilee emblem that could be designed with flowers. The winner of the competition was Katherine Dewar from Chester who designed a recreation to the Queens official jubilee emblem.
The Flowers were put together and tended to by two gardeners and they took seven and a half hours to be put together. The flower bed will remain in view for the public until October or until the first frosts of the Winter arrive. Tickets are a very reasonable £8 for adults or £4.50 for children with family tickets costing £20.50. Visitors wishing to attend the flower display will need to visit Waddesdon Manor website to check the availability of tickets for the dates they wish to attend.
