World's largest hanging basket unveiled in Paddington for opening of Hotel Indigo

The vast ornament weighs a quarter of a ton and measures 20ft across and 10ft high.

It has been commissioned to mark the opening of the new Hotel Indigo in West London.

Over 100 varieties of seasonal plants and flowers are on display in the basket, which took a team of designers, engineers and gardeners three weeks to make.

The giant basket was created to mark the opening of Hotel Indigo London Paddington and hangs 7.5 metres (25 feet) from the ground off the side of the building. 

 

Hotel Indigo is a new boutique hotel which changes its décor with the seasons.

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 ancient world, and hope that our hanging garden will become a wonder of London.”
