Continental Landscapes are responsible for the planting and maintenance of the spectacular seasonal bedding displays in Westminster. Twice yearly we plant over 330,000 bedding plants. This doubles in the autumn with the addition of over 300,000 spring flowering bulbs into the bedding schemes. The bedding displays contain numerous feature and dot plants, which provide a riot of colour when in full bloom.
The famous exotic planting scheme in the Victoria Embankment Gardens features mature tropical and sub-tropical plants from around the world during the summer and draws visitors into the gardens who come to admire the stunning planting display.
The mature plants are then returned to a holding nursery for the winter. Westminster attracts over a million visitors a day and the bedding displays are much admired. All the bedding plants are recycled within the parks in Westminster and the compost produced is used to enrich the soil for future bedding displays.
