Stanmore House School
Here are two Pop Up Gardens created at home during lockdown by two pupils from Stanmore House School. These gardens are truly tiny, each being built on a plate. Proof that you don't need a large outdoor space to make a Pop Up Garden!
The first garden in the round plate is by Clare. With colourful flowers for pollinators and a tiny house for small garden visitors!
There is a thick layer of moss underneath the flowers making a cosy place for insects to hide.
The second garden in the square, white plate is by Robert.
This garden is even smaller and takes the idea of an edible garden one step further as it's laid out like a meal!
Here we have dandelions which are good for both pollinators and for people to eat. There is also plenty of healthy soil and sticks for insects to hide in.
This Pop Up Garden is a 20th Birthday Garden. In 2020 we celebrated 20 years of working under the name Keep Scotland Beautiful to help people change the way they think about the environment and encourage them to take action to improve and protect it.
