Gee Tee Bulbs at the Spalding Flower Parade

20th May 2024

The warehouse is finally tidy, our feet are rested, and the whole Gee-Tee Family are full of pride!

Our Bee-Movie themed float for the 2024 Spalding Flower Parade was a huge success. Large crowds lining the streets and a wonderful atmosphere, it was a really great weekend.

The whole team worked extremely hard to put our vision together and we were delighted with the results. The whole family have been involved in some way, whether that be sewing material flowers, painting, planting, picking and pinning tulips, costume making, washing tractors, building hexagons, styling Barry’s hair or getting messy with paper mâché it really has been a team effort.

We also had an incredible group of ‘buzzy bees’ who walked the three mile route around Spalding in the blistering heat, who certainly helped put a smile on everybody’s face. Thank you!

The crowds loved the colour our float had with the help of left over bulbs from the autumn. Barry the Bee was covered with tulips including Mount Tacoma, Black Hero, Yokohama and Big Smile. Whilst the rest of the float included tulips such as Menton, Recreado and Violet beauty as well as touches of Dutch Iris Purple Sensation, Muscari Armeniacum, Primula Vialii, Hostas and Osteospermum Margarita.

Now the hard work begins in getting our website up and running for our Autumn season and in the meantime, we will have a think about next year’s entry into the parade.
