Warm May has given a good kick-start for balcony gardening. Peas and herbs already in bloom! http://naturecots.fi

The holidays are here, see you in August! Have a great summer!
The first modules of The Movable Bilberry Pad are now ready. We planted the Siberian larch container modules with wild bilberries, lingonberries, crowberries and some other forest floor plants such as mosses and calluna.
Our balcony apple tree survived the harsh Finnish winter. Apparently the thermo pot really does work. Hooray!
A nice urban mini meadow has sprung up at the entrance to Jätkäsaari district in Helsinki. There is surprisingly rich flora growing in the barren soil between the sidewalk and a bike path. It’s really nice to see at least a glimpse of wild nature in the concrete jungle of Jätkäsaari. Hopefully the city will let the mini meadow flourish.
We visited Jätkäsaari to see how the recently vacated cargo port of Helsinki turns into a neighborhood for 17 000 residents and 6 000 jobs. The construction will go on until 2025, but already Jätkäsaari was well on the way.
