Here, in the middle of Manchester, you seek out every bit of nature – and it can flourish in the most unexpected places.
A stone’s throw from my Castlefield home is a vast, busy interchange where major thoroughfares intersect.

Less than a mile away is a rust-colored branch of a self-storage business where alium blooms, while cow parsley grows undisturbed on an area of the canal towpath.
We need wilderness more than ever, especially in our urban centres. Why mow it for the sake of cleanliness? Please share your thoughts on this below.
