Street Gardens of Tokyo

Street Gardens of Tokyo

One of Slugg’s favourite things to do when travelling is to spend time wandering through bustling and picturesque streets, hoping to stumble upon interesting clusters of potted plants that line them.

When visiting Tokyo (Slugg is such a jet setter!), Slugg found it fascinating to discover numerous pot plants dotted around entrances in apartment buildings and shop fronts. It well and truly brightened his day!

These incredible images were taken by the talented India and Magnus of Haarkon, who spend their time documenting their travels. Enjoy!

  • 1. Drainage

    Place a single layer of drainage screen directly over the drain hole.

  • 2. Pot setup

    Once you have chosen the location for your pots, place four pot feet on the ground and position the pot on top.

  • 3. Potting mix

    Cover the piece of drainage screen with a good quality potting mix and fill the pot to the desired level and gently compact in layers.

  • 4. Plant it

    Carefully remove the plant from its nursery pot. Put the plant in your prepared garden pot, ensuring the potting mix soil sits at the same level as the soil in the nursery pot.
