Brightening up Leeds one lily at a time
« on: December 14, 2013, 01:50:44 PM »
Mission complete. I successfully planted six lilies around Leeds each bearing my Guerrilla Gardener tag and a laminated placard explaining my project and referring any who might be interested to visit this website. As an inexperienced gardener I worry for the survival of the lilies over this harsh winter, however I have been informed that as they are bulb plants they should return next year. I planted them on Thursday and, when checking them on Friday, discovered to my great distress that two of them had disappeared without a trace! We can only hope that they are in a better place now. On the whole, the public reacted well to my planting endeavours with smiles of interest coming my way all day. I hope that the lilies will continue to inspire smiles for years to come.
