The floating garden

You don't need a large garden to make an impact. Here is the floating garden created by my dear brother, Jobo. An artist, and long time garden lover, he currently lives on an old narrow boat that tours the extensive English canal network. When I caught up with him recently his boat was moored in Little Venice in North London.

Jobo's floating garden

Jobo's upper deck is covered with a large array of plants and small statues.Selections include wall flowers, spurges, succulents, herbs and annuals. As river thefts are common there are no expensive pots, but that doesn't matter as the flowers are the stars of the show. When travelling Jobo often goes through canal tunnels, because of this no large plants are used.
