From Chelsea to Wimbledon…

Inspired by Andy Sturgeon’s brilliant garden for Chelsea this year, I headed to Chelsea to recreate his garden in miniature as part of the alternative gardening festival, The Chelsea Fringe (supported by my friends at The Joy Of Plants).

Brixton and Bowie

As The Chelsea Fringe comes to a close for it’s fifth year, I headed out to create a miniature tribute to Bowie, in Brixton.

Bristol –> Birmingham and beyond…

The pothole love has been spread from Bristol to Birmingham to Brighton to err Cardiff and Manchester (damn, the alliteration was going so well there for a second).

After my first little set of gardens in London, I headed to Bristol to garden next to one of my favourite Banksy pieces.

In the spirit of creativity the garden also included a mini paint brush set, naturally.

From Bristol I headed in search of a bullring…

Gardening in Birmingham

From Birmingham I headed to Wales where these little daffs found a new home outside a very famous castle…

From this amazing castle, I headed to the beautiful Manchester University to create a mini garden, with mini gates of course.

And a trip around the UK wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the seaside, would it? I headed to Brighton to create a wee seaside garden…

Sharing the pothole love around the UK…

Spring has finally arrived…

I’m gardening my way around the country this spring – from Manchester to Birmingham to Cardiff to Brighton.

First stop, London. Right on the Southbank.

Spring is the best time of year to dust off that bike and get active, right?

Anyone else get their fingers dirty this weekend?
