It wouldn't be Christmas without a little festive garden, would it? I created this little garden in London Fields, complete with everything you need at Christmas time: presents, a TV, crackers, Christmas stockings, decorations, a Yule Log and of course a Christmas Tree.

Unestablishment gardening

I was asked by Koppaberg to run a short pothole gardening walk around East London last week as part of their unestablishment series of events. So last Monday, I set off with some keen gardeners to create some miniature magic...

Columbia Road Flower Market meets Cologne!

I've blogged before about how much I love Columbia Road Flower Market. Nothing beats a Sunday stroll down the buzzing street with a coffee in hand.

One thing that always amazes me is how people react to my gardens. So much so that I've created this short film, Holes Of Happiness (with the help of Cheyne and friends). We tried to capture peoples first reactions to our gardening antics, and we asked them about what they were looking at and why they thought they existed.
