1 May 2014 International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day


Every May since 2006 a group of guerilla gardeners in Brussels declared the 1st of May, International Sunflower Guerilla Gardening Day. A day for everyone everywhere with a cheeky guerilla gardening streak to spread our gardening love beyond our plots, windowsills, gardens (if your lucky!), to plant sunflowers seed in our communities in the hope that they will bring beauty and smile to peoples faces in our neighbourhoods

It’s a great idea and something I’ve wanted to join in with in the past but never got round to it. That’s not to say I’ve not seen the results of other guerilla gardeners efforts in the wild, I’ve spied sunflowers in the randomly in neglected shopping precinct flower beds and even in legal Inn’s of Temple London.

I’ll be arming myself with a few sunflower seeds for this Thursday, I’ve been eying up a few potential spots to jolly up with some guerilla gardening sunflowers. If you fancy joining in or just want to find out more check out the king of Guerilla Gardening, Richard Reynolds, guerillagardening.org’s facebook page:

For me it’s all about the simple things in life. Pottering around my allotment, growing things indoors and out, baking a good cake, being outside, pretty things, vintage finds and a good pot of tea. It’s all the small things that make me tick, noticing the beauty in everyday things. Although this blog initially was intended to be a blog about all these things its evolved into being basically a blog about our allotment. Our adventures, highs and lows, wins and loses. So join me & Mr Wilson as we learn from our mistakes and successes down plot 18a.
