Royal gardeners to keep flowers vibrant for wedding

There has been much speculation about the varieties of spring wedding flowers that will be used at the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

It has been reported that Middleton is working with three florists to accommodate the massive celebration and the hundreds of flowers it will include. Gardenias, lilies of the valley, delphinium and roses are expected to be among some of the blooms featured at the royal wedding.

"It will be white and very scented, along the lines of an English garden," a royal courtier told US Weekly about the wedding flowers.

There are also reports that the flowers at the ceremony alone will cost more than $800,000.

While much of the focus has been on the special bouquets and arrangements being created for the royal wedding, the Daily Mail reports that warmer-than-usual temperatures mean gardeners will have to work hard to keep the legendary gardens at Buckingham Palace looking perfect for the wedding.

"The gardeners inspect the beds carefully every week. There won't be any bedraggled, sorry-looking blooms on the wedding day. The wallflowers will be looking beautiful," palace spokesman Frances Therrien told the newspaper.
