I do like the countryside, but only if there are coffee shops and cabs within shouting distance. As such, I’m loving guerrilla gardening – people planting seeds or small plants in little patches of neglected public ground. It’s popping up everywhere, with all kinds of people having a go, from the chap on my road who plants little flowers at the base of a tree on the pavement, to bigger, more organised projects. The result is pretty colours and soft shapes against hard, urban edges (and no need for wellies).

Guerrilla Gardening‘s figurehead is Richard Reynolds. This year, he and his fellow gardeners have collaborated with Liberty to produce cool little lavender bags: check them out at here and read an interview with Richard Reynolds over here.
