Businesses in Brighton & Hove are set to look even more ‘blooming lovely’ this summer, with floral displays to rival those on show at top London hotels.
City in Bloom has joined forces with Windowflowers – one of the leading providers of floral displays in the UK, to provide hanging baskets for the city.
Brighton & Hove City Council has appointed a specialist horticultural company to supply baskets and tubs for the city and for businesses taking part in this year’s City in Bloom campaign.
Windowflowers already works with other local authorities including Windsor and Maidenhead, is the in-house florist for several major London hotels including the Grosvenor House on Park Lane and provides floral displays to the Ritz Hotel and Claridges.
The company grows and produces all its own plants.
Businesses will be able to order hanging baskets directly from Windowflowers and choose to maintain them themselves, or have them fed and watered all summer long. The company can also provide and install brackets.
Hanging baskets, and other tubs and planters are also available for community and residents groups who can also contact the company to discuss their needs.
Councillor Geoffrey Theobald, Cabinet member for Environment said: “I am delighted that the council is joining forces with Windowflowers – a company with a huge amount of expertise and experience in producing stunning hanging baskets and floral displays.
“Appointing an outside contractor will leave the council’s City Parks service free to concentrate on producing bedding for the growing numbers of displays in council parks and open spaces, so residents and visitors should see a much more florally attractive city this summer.”
Traders can meet a representative from Windowflowers by dropping in at Brighton Town Hall on March 10 from 6 - 8pm.
