Feel free to post other examples of historic GG projects in this thread=)

I'd like to nominate Miss Ellen Willmott, who lived in the early part of the 20th century, for scattering seeds in other people's gardens.

She apparently always kept seeds in her pockets and would spread them about. Because of this, there are many plants that became known as  "Miss Willmott's Ghost".
