A little wonder all the way from Ghent…

Check out this wonderful little garden, sent to my by Hans Peter von Transslyvanien.



Keep those gardens coming.

I’ve had a number of emails asking about new gardens – don’t worry I’ve been getting my fingers dirty and I’ll post some pictures soon. I’ve also got a new little project launching on the Pothole Gardener shortly, so stay tuned…

A lovely day for a bike ride…

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.

Adding some pinks to Redchurch Street…

Fancy a little sit down in the sunshine?


It had a narrow escape early on…


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…

A little kitchen 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.

Did someone say spring?

Finally, it’s almost time to dust off the BBQ, fire it up and soak up some sunshine.

I headed out gardening with photographer Jonathan Perugia who got this great snap the other morning of my BBQ inspired garden…

Autumnal happenings

I’ve been sent some super sweet gardens over the past week or so.

Raven Forest sent me this wonderful series complete with some adorable tiny people (and hedgehog!)!



And the staff at Garden Lamposts have been busy, with this pothole inspired installation!
