I received this message from Sachiko in Japan:

Dear Richard,

First of all, I would like to say how I admire you for your activity. This is Sachiko who lives in Tokyo and I was always thinking that we need more green in Tokyo and you gave me the super cool idea to break through. I would definitely like to start this gardening but I am a sort of beginner of gardening, so, here is some question I would like to ask you.

Q1: Which season is better to start gardening you think?
Q2: Is there any recommend plant or flower which is quite tough and easy for beginners?
Q3: Have you or have you heard anyone accused by this activity?

In near future I hope I will send you my small work in Tokyo.
Best

Sachiko


Here are my answers:
Q1: Which season is better to start gardening you think?
SPRING TIME (i.e. now!) is best for most plants, scatter some seeds for bright 'annuals' (that is plants which only flower for a year, but tend to be colourful), plant out small seedlings from a shop, or even larger stuff.  You can garden right through the summer adding seeds and new plants, this is the growing season.  Plant bulbs (daffodils, tulips etc) in Autumn and early winter and they will flower in spring.  And plant trees when they are dormant (late autumn and winter).


Q2: Is there any recommend plant or flower which is quite tough and easy for beginners?
I've never been to Japan but assume your horticultural is climatically similar to ours.    Try Coneflowers, Achilea, Nastursiums, Lavender, Poppies.  Cheap easy and attractive.

Q3: Have you or have you heard anyone accused by this activity?
I have never got in trouble.  Those who get in trouble are either very unlucky or have taken on something of such a large scale that it becomes an intrusion to someone else.  Many guerrillas begin illicitly but once they have something beautiful to show for their efforts they let the authorities now about it.  In New York the Green Guerrillas rented the land off the city (for $1 a year!) after about a year of guerrilla gardening.  Here in London a couple of North London guerrillas have come clean with the council and been hugely appreciated.  So far I've kept away from the authorities, but in a couple of cases they approached me and gave me some funds as thanks!  That really was incredible.  Go about it in a common sense way and few will disagree with what you are doing!

All the best.  Let us know how you get on.
