Flower towers installed in town centre

Towers of flowers have been installed in the centre of Maidenhead ahead of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Seven planters, each standing more than six feet tall, were set up last week including two near the train station and one outside the cinema.

They line the route between the station and Kidwells Park where activities will be going on to mark both the jubilee and the Olympic Games.

Four types of plants have been used - lobelias, dragon wing begonias, blue vein surfinias and red ivy leaf geraniums - and if they grow as anticipated they will hide the black plastic towers underneath.

The planters were put together by Windowflowers in Burnham and cost £700 each, which also covers their upkeep for the summer.
