They are ever-reliable, unshowy and, much to the chagrin of their dedicated fans, rather unfashionable. But the geranium is set for a major comeback, it seems.Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have selected white Mayflower and Dusky Cranesbill geraniums, grown in the Royal Parks nursery, to join the floral displays at their wedding on Saturday. Even the gardener in charge of growing the plants, along with countless others, does not know how they will end up on display after months of hard work in London’s Hyde Park.Nursery manager Mike Jones said he does not know where floral designer Philippa Craddock will use his flowers, so will be trying to spot them as he watches the wedding on TV.”We don’t know where they’re going to be, so we’ll be eagerly looking out ourselves to see where they are,” Mr Jones said. Branches of beech, birch and hornbeam will also be used in the decorations, with the locally sourced foliage coming from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park. The 36-year-old, from Bourn in Cambridgeshire, added: “We’re really excited. We work really hard to try and champion pollinators and support them because they’re in decline.” Asked if he felt under pressure, the 58-year-old from Leamington Spa said: “We do, because we really want it to be the best we can possibly do. It’s showcasing not only our growing of plants, but the Royal Parks in general.”It is thought the flowers – between 150 and 200 individual plants which are pollinator-friendly – will be incorporated into Ms Craddock’s displays in and around St George’s Chapel which will feature white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves.

The flowers that have been chosen are particularly pollinator-friendly flowers, which means they have a good store of nectarDr Alice Laughton Dr Laughton is also excited for another reason – she is getting married this Saturday too.”I like to think that all the wedding buzz is about my wedding so it’s been quite fun,” she said.Talking about the flowers at her own wedding, she said: “My parents actually have grown all my flowers, so they’ve grown native pollinator-friendly flowers as well.” Looking ahead to Saturday, Mr Jones said: “I shall be watching the wedding along with half the rest of the country I would imagine. Looking out for my plants.”Dr Alice Laughton, conservation manager at the Royal Parks, explained the importance of the flowers being pollinator-friendly, and what that might mean.”The flowers that have been chosen are particularly pollinator-friendly flowers, which means they have a good store of nectar so they provide a lot of food for pollinators that are attracted to the flowers. Mr Jones said geraniums “add a splash of colour”, adding: “They live for years so they will grow all summer, flower all summer, die down in the winter, and then come back again the following year, so very good value.”The gardener said they were ideal for “a relaxed look”. Asked if the flowers will be getting special treatment in the coming days, he said: “They’ll be getting a lot of TLC. We’ll be making sure they’re watered well, making sure they’re protected, and making sure that the flowers stay in the perfect condition for the day.”It’s only a few more days to go, so we want them to be absolutely pristine when they go.” “So on wedding day we might see some bees, some bumblebees, hoverflies, some butterflies, all important pollinators here in the UK,” she said.

Last month Boston Dynamics was asked by DARPA to turn their LS3 robot into a silent, bulletproof unit. But that isn’t the only robot Boston is working on right now, as they also have an all terrain running robot called WildCat.New footage of WildCat has been posted on Boston Dynamics‘ YouTube page, which you can watch below. It looks quite similar to LS3, but is actually a smaller version of the Cheetah robot. Cheetah can run at 28mph while tethered. WildCat can only manage 16mph, but does so untethered.As you can see, WildCat uses a combination of galloping and bounding to achieve such speeds, and also manages to recover from a stumble easily and quickly. Now imagine this speeding across a hostile area carrying supplies on its back for the troops. It’s like something you’d expect to see in the movies, not real life, but Boston Dynamics is certainly doing everything it can to push robot technology forward.WildCat is a work in progress and also funded by DARPA through its M3 program, so there’s every chance it will end up getting faster and more stable. It already looks pretty capable, but I’d like to see it galloping across uneven ground to get a sense of how it really performs. And just like with LS3, it needs a better power solution that isn’t as noisy.If you’re wondering what its big brother Cheetah looks like running flat out, check out the video below. As you can see, it’s fair to say WildCat is the more accomplished runner simply because it is managing to run quite fast without any tethers or assistance from a moving floor underfoot.
