Living wall at the Radisson Blue hotel
The stunning living wall, which measures 10m² and features a range of indoor plants, greets visitors at the check-in desk at the main reception. The system features a built-in computerised irrigation system and specially developed nutritionally balanced minerals substrate to support vegetation. Installation of the plant wall at the Radisson Blu hotel was completed in a single day by Hedera Screens of Derbyshire. The only preparatory work needed was the fitting of the growing light prior to installation. The plants were grown offsite by Mobilane and delivered ready for installation. The wall was greeted with delight by management and visitors alike, as Daniel Kean, General Manager explains: “The plant wall looks great. Visitors love it and we’ve had nothing but positive comments.”
