Matthew Carroll from Hortiman is Earth Hour’s garden adviser. In his first blog post, he talks about ways people can set up a garden using a very small space - dwarf fruiting trees, espaliers, greenwalls and vertical gardens, hanging baskets, indoor crops and multi-purpose plants.
In today’s world, it’s easy to think it’s too difficult for young people to have the time and space to cultivate a garden, especially if they live in an apartment. But Hortiman will be answering questions on Earth Hour’s Facebook page today from 4 PM EST (US) to dispel this myth.
If you have any questions or would like further information visit Hortiman on their website or check them out on Facebook. To find out more about the many benefits of plant life in your life visit Plant/Life Balance on Facebook.


When I see people cutting down trees everywhere I wonder what they are thinking. Yes... trees do play havoc at times with plumbing and there are times when the danger factor is high and it must be addressed. But so often getting rid of trees is for the sake of a view or perhaps simply to assert "I own this patch of land and I'll do what I want thank you very much!"

Plant - life balance is a curious play on work - life balance which loses vitality over time as a concept when it becomes used to death. Today this seems worth a ponder... how is my plant life balance?

A neighbour cut down his massive fur tree and all I could think was....."100 years to grow...1 afternoon to saw into bits!" Sigh.

absolutely Carol...
I live in a hot place and I wonder if people given to cutting down trees left right and centre don't notice the heat. Nothing refreshes me more than that the sight and sensation of taking cover under a big shady tree on the hot days!
