I heard about the guerrilla gardening movement towards the end of the summer last year. Sadly it was a bit too late for me to have a go myself. This year, however, I am hoping things go differently. I have already found a perfect spot near where I live! The council recently changed the paving’s a few minutes walk from my house and they left a nice big gap around the base of a tree. I’d guess it’s just over 2m sq so it’s a pretty sizeable little area. However, it’s quite near a bus stop, so I don’t know how badly it will be affected by passers by. I suppose that remains to be seen.
I’m planning on doing some more research and my first port of call will be the first guerrilla gardening blog I discovered: GuerrillaGardening.org There are some amazing examples, and some are just minutes from where I live!
I can also pick between planting actual plants (more time spent on the site committing the deed!) or sewing seeds (the odds of getting caught are super slim!). Sewing seeds might be a good way to start, and Perhaps seed bombs are the way to go!
