The London 2012 Olympic Games are getting closer, and with only 248 days to go, we thought we’d give you another quick update on the preparations currently underway…
After two-years of arduous planning, the Royal Horticultural Society’s planting programme at the London 2012 Olympic Park has finally been completed. The 250-acres of parkland, which has been created from former industrial land overlooking the Olympic Stadium, will become the UK’s largest urban park in over a century, and will provide a vibrant and colorful backdrop for the games.
The park will feature an astounding 120,000 plants from 250 different species across the world and will become a haven for wildlife such as otter, kingfisher, grey heron and water vole.
Here at Flemings we can’t wait until the Olympic Park Britsh Garden is open to visitors, but in the meantime we’ll be roaming Regents Park, Hyde Park, Green Park and the many other beautiful open spaces that London has to offer!
