Thousands of Public Gardens for London 2012

"Partially fuelled by hugely over-subscribed allotment spaces across the UK, the initiative is bringing more gardening sites to frustrated would-be gardeners seeking a space to nurture budding green-fingers."

Gardens at more than 1,200 sites have been chosen and at least partially created so far.
