It's all very exciting about getting free window boxes, however I believe that the residents of Devon Mansions have written into their lease that window boxes are not allowed - presumably due to the fact that they are pretty close to the street and safety is an issue, but as long as they are secured and not likely to fall on someone's head, I think it would look wonderful if everyone had a window box, and I'd like to see Southwark try and ban it.
OK! But any advice on planting large ceramic tubs with herbs for my culinary advetures would be appreciated.I already have some plants waiting to pot up!Sage,Thyme,Basil,Parsley are all waiting patiently for a new home on my south facing 6th floor balcony!Tyhanks!
The 'they' in question is not Southwark Council, who are not going to put any money towards the regeneration of St John's Park but the PLP and the landscape architects who have done the plans and organised the little party in the park on Saturday.
And incidentally, James, they were giving away plants, planters, terracotta pots, soil and advice to everyone, and you don't often get generosity like that anymore, it was very refreshing.
