The young flowers will take a few weeks of growing to reach their full glory, but will be maintained throughout the summer period until they are removed in September.

There will be four three-tiered colourful planters, 14 barrier baskets as seen in the town last year and eight basket trees.

OJ Daya, BID chair and branch manager of Waitrose, said: "The Welwyn Garden City environment is already attractive to shoppers and visitors. However, these floral displays will enhance the concrete pedestrian areas."

This year the BID flower installations will be entered into a BID category in the Anglia in Bloom annual competition for the first time.
