A green-fingered resident of north London is giving some of the capital's numerous potholes a ‘Ground Force’-style makeover by planting spring flowers in them.

Steve Wheen, a Shoreditch resident, has had his work featured in the Evening Standard and on TV news bulletins. He told LCC he was amazed at the amount of coverage he's had in the media.


Brilliant!Art combined with a strong message. In the '60s they stuck flowers in the ends of guns...I would love to see the motorists driving around these mini-gardens. Next up- a film version?
