Encouraged by "The Irish Times" GUERILLA GARDENERS feature  I have been restoring a vandalised county council  corner shrubbery last Thursday and Friday where vandals dumped beer cans and bottles over the years along with Christmas trees, broken branches, and assorted rubbish including household rubble.
Ten hours of manual labour by yours truly has cleared the site.
Luckily enough a kind contractor allowed me to use a skip he had on hire. Not only that! He gave me three dumper loads of top soil to use, gratis. Thank you, Mr McKeon.

I  transplanted a leycesteria Formosa, Fuschia bush and cordyline and nasturtium seeds into this "new" garden.

Two days later I dicovered a barrowful of cement waste had been dumped on my seeded soil!!! 

I'll rectify that mess and continue. Photos will follow later.

Alls not lost, the cement was diluted and easily covered over. Pelagorniums added.

 Planted an orangetree grown from a pip on another grass corner that had been crushed by parking vans. Buried rocks raised the large shrub high enough to deter drivers. ;-)
