Dig for victory
There’s a great story in Plymouth’s Evening Herald today (we know! Step back in amazement!).
Apparently, a grotty public space in Stoke has been transformed into a thriving flowerbed overnight thanks to the nocturnal efforts of a green army (and we’re not talking about Plymouth Argyle).
According to the Herald, around 15 ‘Guerrilla Gardeners’ have planted species including Japanese anemones, sage, lavender, berberis, bamboo and evening primrose to spruce up the neglected green space.
An idea from America, Guerrilla Gardening aims to spruce up public areas, striking at night, with the gardeners contributing to the cost of the revamp.
They claim they’re not making any kinda statement but we reckon their actions are about as political as it gets.
