This year on Tuesday, May 24th, there will be a Front Garden Summit to bring attention to the Greening Grey Britain movement.   Apparently there are more than 5 million front gardens with no plants in them.  The summit will address the effect this has on the environment as well as personal wellbeing.  It can be accessed on their website for streaming.

I’m sure the ideas for introducing plant material into front gardens will be spectacular…

“Hope on The Horizon” is a “contemplative space that represents the process which injured servicemen and women go through on the road to recovery, designed to support Help for Heroes.  Granite blocks symbolise the soldiers’ physical wellbeing and planting reflects their mental wellbeing. The journey starts with a rough, unfinished and overgrown area, evolving through the garden to conclude with a perfectly structured section. An avenue of hornbeams draws attention to a sculpture resembling a horizon, a reminder to the soldiers that they all have a bright future ahead. As well as areas to relax and reflect, the garden also offers focal points along the journey.”
