The sea of floral tributes that was left in London’s parks for Queen Elizabeth II will be composted and re-used on planting projects.

According to the city’s Royal Parks, a huge volume of flowers have been left in parks across London following the death of Britain’s longest-serving monarch, who was laid to rest last Monday (19 September).

Work to remove the flowers will begin next Monday, a week after the state funeral for the late Queen who died on 8 September at the age of 96, and after 70 years on the throne.

Mourners can still leave tribute flowers at the park, however bunches of flowers which have already deteriorated will be taken away. 

The Royal Parks include all the well-known green spaces like Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Green Park which have been the main place as floral tribute sites for the past years.

The compost will be used on landscaping projects and shrubberies across the parks.
