I was recently in (very chilly) Stockholm and decided to flex my green fingers to create a simple little garden near the harbour.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a little festive garden, would it?
I created this little garden in London Fields, complete with everything you need at Christmas time: presents, a TV, crackers, Christmas stockings, decorations, a Yule Log and of course a Christmas Tree.
I also wanted to remind people that some people do it rough at Christmas, why not support a charity like SHELTER this festive season.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
The Barbican is an iconic London landmark and also home to my latest little garden…
I’ve been sent two new awesome little gardens recently – Julia Keim included a deck chair for a tired farmer…
And this one from Sydney, Australia includes real alfalfa!
Keep those gardens coming in – I’ve got some more copies of my books to give away
My book hits the shelves next week, here’s a trailer to whet your appetite!
There’s more info on the book here: http://www.thelittlebookoflittlegardens.com
I was sent this wonderful installation inspired by the pothole garden blog from Judit Sarosi-Eotvos in Eastbourne. A book is on it’s way to you as a big thank you!
I was asked by Koppaberg to run a short pothole gardening walk around East London last week as part of their unestablishment series of events.
So last Monday, I set off with some keen gardeners to create some miniature magic…
Andrew came prepared with his own miniature Carp…
Louie got creative with a mini ladder and chalkboard…
The team getting into it on Redchurch Street…
Lights. Camera. Action.
Thanks to Koppaberg for the opportunity to take these guys gardening! Also thanks to Love The Garden for the grow your own supplies.
If you’re feeling inspired, why not get involved in the Chelsea Fringe? Registrations are now open for 2013 here.
I’ve a very exciting announcement to make next week, so stay tuned!
Recently I’ve been sent some photos of wonderful pothole gardens and I’ve been meaning to post them. It’s great to see potholes from all around the world getting some love!
In the run up to the release of The Little Book of Little Gardens, I’ve been given a few goodies to giveaway (such as a 50 quid voucher from Groupon) to some of the creators of the gardens sent to me. Get out there and create some moments of happiness, take a picture and send it to me! You’ll be surprised at how good it feels. I might even send you a copy of My book…
The Lemonade Learners sent me this one created in Sydney:
Here is a series of gardens created in Holland by Rob van Eeden:
And ABC Radio Tasmania are currently running a Pothole Garden treasure hunt and they created this video!
Keep them rolling in!
I posted a sneak preview of my gardening adventures in Milan earlier this week.
The film we were shooting is now online, check it out!
Thanks again to the guys at Urban and Lancia.
Las Vegas is going to be the next stop on my gardening tour, any ideas for gardens please do post on my facebook page!
