Royal Wedding Flowers To Be Donated, Replanted

Yet another green piece of the royal wedding has come to light, as ABC News is reporting that William and Kate have chosen London-based florist Shane Connolly to oversee arrangements at Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. Connolly, known for his “sustainable approach to floristry”, plans on using locally sourced plants for the big event – including azaleas, rhododendron, euphorbias, beech, wisteria and lilac. There will even be six 20ft-high English Field Maple and two Hornbeam trees in the Abbey – all growing, according to the BBC , in giant planters made by craftsmen at Highgrove, the Prince of Wales’s residence in Gloucestershire. The arrangements will remain on display for the public until May 6th. Afterwards, the trees will be planted in Highgrove Gardens – with other flowers and cuttings either being donated or replanted.
