The RHS Theme:

The campaign will be called Greening Grey Britain and will run for three years, during which time we’ll be aiming to support groups to transform a total of 9,000 unloved (grey) spaces into great green spaces for people and wildlife. To help groups do this we will be offering advice, tips and resources (and free nasturtium seeds for groups in the first year). Obviously this is something that many groups already do, so we’re aiming for the campaign to support their achievements, encourage people to consider new projects and inspire others to get involved.
