Romford Business Improvement District (BID) and Windowflowers Limited have put them up in South Street, Victoria Road, Western Road, High Street and Market Place.
As the weeks continue they will bloom and their colour will improve.
A living wall has also been installed opposite Romford Station to welcome people to the town.
It features 30 fibreglass planters positioned in five rows. They display a mixture of evergreen plants such as ivy, ferns and heuchera.
Thomas Kluza, from Windowsflowers Limited, said: “We are aiming to maximise the floral impact of our displays for as long as possible into the season.
“We hope that these will bring cheer to all the businesses, residents and visitors to Romford and look forward to strengthening our ties with the BID management”.
Windowsflowers is a family-owned and managed horticultural nursery founded in 1947, specialising in providing flowers for luxury hotels, offices and local authorities.
They grow over one million plants a year which they use to plant more than five miles of windowboxes and twenty thousand hanging baskets.
The business will also ensure the hanging baskets and living wall are maintained and watered every few days.
Julie Frost BID Director said: “Like the slowly unfurling petals of the summer flowers on display in our hanging baskets, the nation is inching its way towards the final lifting of restrictions.
“When this day does come, I want Romford to be positively bursting with life and colour! I want the town centre to be a living tribute to our town’s triumph over the pandemic.
“This is the message I will be taking to the 2021 London In Bloom competition as part the BID/town centre nomination at this prestigious annual event.”
