pothole garden royal post post box east london The Pothole Gardening of Steve Wheen
Guerilla gardener Steve Wheen combines a lack of road maintenance with a surplus of whimsy by making tiny themed gardens in potholes around East London.

The pictures and gardens are supposed to put smiles on peoples faces and alert them to potholes! I don’t leave any of the props out after we shoot them, I have only ever created low gardens on very quiet streets, mostly dead end lanes and on footpaths in my areas. This blog is about my little gardens. It’s a mashup of a bit of creativity and a bit of gardening.
