It’s perfect bike riding weather at the moment in London, don’t you think? On my recent gardening adventure with Arte TV, I created this wee garden on Shoreditch High Street.
I received this wonderful little garden all the way from Glenlyon, a tiny town in Central Victoria, Australia. Thank you so much to the team at The Gardens of Glenlyon for sending it through! I wonder who wears those wee little clothes…a copy of Isabelle Palmers’ new book, The House Gardener is on it’s way down under.
It’s alive and well so if you’re in the area go and have a look.
As spring time is the most exciting time of year to get your fingers dirty in the garden (no matter where you plan to do it) I’ve got a signed copy of Isabelle Palmers’ new book, The House Gardener to give away for one lucky pothole gardener!
Take some inspiration from some of these wonderful gardens that have been sent to me from all over the world and get gardening, send me some pics, I’ll post them here on the blog and I’ll send one lucky gardener a book! It even popped up in my garden…
As Spring gets under way, I’ve just been sent these wonderful two gardens from Alex and his grandma Mary.
Alex has been recovering after having his appendix out, so he’s had plenty of time to plan his little garden.
Alex and Mary have created the very first herb pothole garden in Haslemere road in Crouch End, so their neighbours can enjoy some free herbs over the summer months.
If all of the recent sunshine has inspired you to get out there and spread some happiness, take a photo and email it to me so I can share your adventures here on the blog. To help you get you kitted out, my lovely friends over at YIMBY are giving away some great guerrilla gardening starter kits, check them out here.
After finding some seasonal blooms at New Covent Garden Market (and meeting Bob, one of the stars of their annual calendar), I found this little pothole in Vauxhall ripe for some gardening to share the love this Valentine’s Day.
For those of you who follow my work, you’ll know that I’m a big believer in the little things – “it’s those little gestures that can make a big difference”. I wanted to share this great little film from Time To Change, a mental health charity.
What little gesture could you make today to make a big difference?
