Thousands of Leicester City fans walked through the city last weekend, singing Vichai's name through the streets, marching to remember the five who died.
A memorial garden will open this weekend on the site of the accident, next to the King Power stadium, in honour of Vichai and the four who died.
All floral tributes left since the accident will be composted and used to support the growth and development of the new planting scheme within the garden.
