Flowers left for Her late Majesty the Queen to be composted

Flowers left in London’s Green Park for Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II are in the process of being removed and composted. Staff and volunteers have begun work removing cellophane wrappings and elastic bands, separating artefacts to ensure that only organic material is composted. This compost will be used to enrich the soil of London's Royal Parks. The bouquets will be transported by two senior grey Shire horses - Heath and Nobby - to the Leaf Pen in Kensington Gardens where the flowers will be blended with other green waste and turned into mulch.
