What do you do when life gives you potholes? Make a garden, of course! Steve Wheen (aka The Pothole Gardener) has transformed hundreds of potholes so far…and frankly, they are incredible. Steve has been pothole gardening for 7 years now, mainly around the streets of London. They are made with compost and whichever flowers he chooses to plant, and while they are often temporary additions to the streets, Steve hopes that he will make a lasting impression on the people who are lucky enough to come across his work while they go about their daily lives. He writes on his page that ‘The Pothole Gardener project is all about creating unexpected moments of happiness‘ – and it most certainly does! So, people of London, keep your eyes peeled – The Pothole Gardener is back with a vengeance this spring! And because we just couldn’t help ourselves…here’s a sneaky peek.
