Guerrilla Gardening

Yesterday I went Guerrilla Gardening. The location was at the end of Cumberland Road just below School Terrace in Reading. The project was to weed a big neglected concrete tub, then to plant bulbs and other garden vegetation in it. Whilst I worked on the tub, various people spoke to me, most of them thanked me for what I was doing, a couple of kids ask me whether what I was doing was legal and I told them that I was the “Community Gardener”, (I think I should get a jacket of some sort with that name/ title printed on it). The soil was pretty good, I may take some extra peatfree compost down there at some point. I planted a selection of bulbs, including daffodils, tulips, and irises. I may add some other plants in the next week or so for more immediate interest.
