I grew up in East London in the 60's, what was a garden back then, a patch of grass, no flowers, nothing. People look back as if everyone had these great wildlife friendly gardens at least nowadays blocks of flats come with some landscaping and people are trying to grow flowers in containers on their balconies. Who in london made compost, what sort of recycling went on. I am happy to do my bit but I am not lecturing my neighbours on what they can do in their own gardens, I would be battered and bruised if I tried.
