From the Publisher:
An exploration of the sheer wealth and variety of gardening in a unique city filled with tenacious, adaptable, and imaginative gardeners
 
London boasts more than three million gardens, from pocket handkerchief front yards to historic horticultural sites like Westminster College Garden, which is more than 900 years old and still thriving. For many city dwellers, green has become the new black and this guide celebrates a new style of gardening that has emerged, reflecting London's diverse population. It covers allotments and community gardens taht allow gardenless urbanites to enjoy tending plants and harvesting their own food, fly-by-night guerrilla gardeners who convert neglected public land into verdant oases, and vertical planting techniques creating gardens that soar into the sky. The gardeners here see opportunities in the most unlikely of places?bombsites, railway and canal embankments, roundabouts, and tree pits. This groundbreaking book celebrates the wealth of London's gardens with an inspirational harvest of specially commissioned photographs, reviews, practical gardening advice, and useful listings of horticultural societies and projects, plant nurseries, and more.
