Guerilla gardening - an introduction
I first heard of Guerilla Gardening a couple of years ago. The idea is to brighten up public areas by planting flowers, shrubs, or even vegetables. As I don't have a large garden the idea of Guerilla gardening was something that instantly appealed to me.
The idea has been taken up by many, and I am unsure who thought of the plan originally, but I know that Richard Reynolds has a website dedicated to guerilla gardening. [pimp your pavement] .
You will be astounded how many little grubby patches of unloved public space there are. Neglected flower beds, concrete planters, bare plots of mud. Chose one close to home, perhaps something you walk past on the way to the shops or work, and appoint yourself it's gardener. This will make it much easier to look after in the long term
