I'd spotted that too – it was everywhere. Not only at Hampton Court, Chelsea had quite a bit too – one example has been transferred to Capel Manor.I wonder if it's partly due to the Jubilee?

I hope carpet bedding is back to stay – I think it's wonderful. There used to be a floral clock at Southsea (Portsmouth) – not sure the parks department there can afford it any more but my goodness it was incredible while they had it: we used to go down for a look at it every summer!

I'm sure the jubilee has something to do with the return of carpet bedding. I always think the Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh which put on a fantastic display of carpet bedding – there's even a working clock made from succulents.
