… and plant a seed bomb.
Even if you don’t have a garden of your own, you can make any unloved patch of land a bit more beautiful and a haven for birds and wildlife, by throwing in a ‘seed bomb’.
First identify your target area, whether it’s some disused land or a grass verge. Then bind your seeds together preferably with some biodegradable material such as clay, or if you can’t find any then try using a balloon like a water bomb. Add some soil and water so that the seeds can germinate when they land, and then launch away!
Guerrilla gardening has been around since the 1970s but has grown massively in popularity in the past few years. Technically, it is illegal to plant on property that does not belong to you. However, there are guerrilla gardening cells all over the world that carry out this beautification work, which they believe improves neighbourhoods and encourages regeneration in run down and neglected areas.
