The cube planters on Victoria Road and South Street have been filled with the floral additions to bring colour, cheer and help reduce air pollution.
Romford business group BID, which has been working with Havering Council to improve the city centre, teased it has “another surprise” planned for when lockdown restrictions have eased further.
Councillor Osman Dervish, Havering’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “They will help to add brightness and colour to the look of the town centre and will also help to improve air quality in these areas.
“We very much hope that, once restrictions are eased further, we are able to welcome back fully, residents and visitors shopping in our borough.
“The planters will provide a real lift and will be enjoyed by all.“
BID Director Julie Frost said: “This is the first of the floral contributions we are planning to bring to Romford this year and it’s great to be working with Havering Council on this joint venture.
“We are working with the team at Windowflowers Limited who will also be installing the hanging baskets in a few months along with another surprise we have planned.
“We hope these displays will welcome people back as we come out of lockdown.”
