Has your commute got a little greener lately? Guerilla gardeners The Edible Bus Stop have worked with TfL to turn a series of disused tube ticket offices into urban oases.


The so-called Tiny Parks have cropped up at four appropriately named stations: St James’s Park (where the scheme was first trialled in 2017), Kilburn Park, Belsize Park and Wood Green.

The plants only need watering around once a month, and are chosen for their positive effect on air pollution – and on commuters’ moods.

Keep your bleary eyes open for a tropical paradise in a ticket booth near you.
