Day 215: Blooming Balconies, Dig the City, Manchester

Day 215

Today was the first day of Dig The City Manchester, and The Beginner Gardener (who is down visiting from Scotland) and I went for a good wander round the stalls and show gardens before going to hear Monty Don speak about his life and his garden.  All the show gardens were very inspirational, and for me as a Balcony Gardener, Blooming Balconies, a local business which supplies balcony boxes and pots across the city.  I loved the way they had used a large photo of the city to show how wonderful their planters look – it’s really very effective!
