Largest horizontal wall of flowers-world
record set by Thompson and Morgan
IPSWICH, Suffolk, UK -- The new world record for the
Largest horizontal wall of flowers was set by Thompson
& Morgan's seed company with a 200ft long wall of
flowers containing more than 20,000 blooms.
The largest horizontal wall of flowers is covered in 397 flower
pouches containing the Busy Lizzie 'Accent' variety of flower,
which is one of the company's best-selling plants.
Dixey, of Thompson
& Morgan, said: “We open our trial grounds to the
public this coming weekend.
“We always put on a magnificent display and always try to
improve every year to make it better for our customers.
“We decided to create a huge wall of flowers.
When it came into flower, we thought 'wow' - no one had seen
anything quite like it and we had an idea of going for the
Guinness world record. “It looks absolutely spectacular. Whatever
pictures are taken they don't do it justice.”
Previously, it broke an existing record in 2004
for displaying the largest amount of potato varieties.
