The world’s largest hanging flower basket unveiled at Hotel Indigo London Paddington
The world's largest hanging basket has today been unveiled in Paddington, London. The six by three metre (20 foot by 10 foot) structure - weighing over a quarter of a ton - took a team of designers, engineers and gardeners three weeks to construct and includes over 100 different varieties of seasonal plants and flowers.
Karin Nielsen, spokesperson for Hotel Indigo, comments: "Our hotel is all about unique design, bold colours and seasonal changes so what better way to mark its arrival in the UK than by creating the world's largest hanging basket. We've taken our inspiration from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the seven wonders of the world, and hope that our hanging garden will become a wonder of London."
The hotel is the first Hotel Indigo outside North America. Room prices start from £125 room only (excluding VAT). To book a room at Hotel Indigo London Paddington visit www.hotelindigo.co.uk or call 0871 942 9242.
