    Product description
    This book by London's leading black and white photographer Niki Gorick, reveals for the first time the extraordinary teamwork behind creating and maintaining over 200 garden spaces for all who work or visit the Square Mile. The photographs reveal that this is gardening of mega-proportions - annually, on average, 200,000 bedding plants are dug in, 1,400 trees are tended, 550 tons of soil and 350 tons of mulching are spread, lorry-loads of metre-and-a-half-wide rolls of turf are laid. The daily challenges of tight budgets, uncooperative weather, physical obstructions and traffic interference are all overcome with remarkable speed and solidarity. Unassuming and usually unheralded, this urban 'green team' is a City of London taskforce of expert gardeners to match any in the world. With a foreword by the Lord Mayor of London, Roger Gifford, and with quotes from the gardeners themselves, this is a fascinating insight into how the City Gardens Team take gardening to a new level of excellence.
