What's happening in Leicester?
« on: May 23, 2009, 09:40:04 AM »
Hi, I'm new to the site and am excited by the prospect of a local gardening community! My first attempt at guerilla gardening has been at the back of my house in the shared parking area and bin store. I spent ages weeding the communal weeds out, and planted some ox-eye daisies I'd grown from seed which were just starting to come into bud. Went out the next day... someone had squirted them with weedkiller! They are no more. Poor flowers. The thing is, they were next to a couple of pots I'd placed out there, so you would have thought the offending weed-destroyer would have cottoned on to the fact that the daisies were planted in a neat, weed-free row! Admittedly, the daisies could have passed for weeds at that stage, but even so...! Not sure what to do next, as it might happen again. Any suggestions welcome! :)
